FAIRFIELD — With Memorial Day almost here, town officials remind residents that parking stickers and passes will be required at all town beaches beginning May 27.
Anyone without a parking sticker can purchase a daily sticker at Jennings and Penfield beaches at the gate. The parking fee is $20 on weekdays and $50 on weekends and holidays.
Parking stickers for the shoreline beaches, $25 for residents, can can be purchased at the Parks and Recreation Department or can be renewed online. Non-residents can buy a beach sticker for Jennings and Penfield for $170.
Lifeguards will be on duty from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekends only from May 27 to June 11. They will begin regular summer hours on June 17, with lifeguards on duty from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
No alcoholic beverages or private grills are allowed on any of the town’s beaches, and swimming should only be done in regulated swimming areas.
The Fourth of July fireworks will take place July 2, and parking restrictions will be in place. There will be a limit of 300 cars without parking stickers at Jennings Beach and only 100 without stickers at Penfield Beach. Once the allotted daily passes have been sold, only cars with parking stickers will be allowed in.
Season passes and daily passes are also required at Lake Mohegan. A season pass costs $10 for residents and $20 for non-residents. Residents age 62 and over can get in for free by showing their driver’s license at the gate.
