4th of July Weekend With Westchester Families: Fireworks, A Night on Fire Submitted by Susan Miele on Wed, 06/29/2016 - 4:00pm Fourth of July weekend is upon us and with it comes a long list of family celebrations in Westchester and the Hudson Valley. We've already highlighted your best bets for Westchester firework displays and Hudson Valley fireworks to kick off the holiday weekend; however, there are other great ways to celebrate Independence Day. Check out the Independence Day Fair, the Independence Day Celebration or the New Paltz in the War for Independence, all of which offer a glimpse into the Colonial Era in the setting of a national historic site. Fireworks aren’t the only pyrotechnics lighting up the sky this weekend. A Night on Fire returns with a dazzling performance to ignite Westchester senses. For a different slice of history, the Family Fun Festival offers FREE fun in the form of a dunk tank, a raptor show and more. If you are looking for more ideas, our July GoList highlights many of the top events for the rest of this month, and our Event Calendar provides numerous listings for both mid-week and weekend—all summer long!
