Looking for the best things to do on Long Island this 4th of July weekend? Read on for details on where to catch the fireworks and for other family-friendly events to add to your list.

Kick off the 4th of July weekend with a bang at fireworks displays across Long Island.

If you're looking for something to do before the sparklers take flight, consider a trip to one of Long Island's lovely state parks or family-friendly beaches.

Beyond the holiday festivities, our top things to do this weekend include Alive on 25 in Riverhead, the Empire State FairEternal Con: The Long Island Comic Con, and more.

We've got fun seasonal picks in our Summer Fun Guide and our list of the best things to do all month long. As always, our Activity Calendar is constantly updated, too.
