Break out your red, white and blue, and get ready to wave that grand old flag.
On Fourth of July weekend, and before and after, families across Long Island gather for picnics, barbecues and, of course, fireworks. We've rounded up Independence Day fireworks happenings up and down Long Island, from Nassau to Suffolk counties and all the way to the East End. July 4 is a Tuesday this year, so fireworks celebrations begin as early as Thursday, June 29 and continue past the weekend of July 8-9.
