“Celebrate America” Presented by TD Bank

East Meadow, NY - June 27, 2014 - Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano today announced that Nassau County and TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank®, will celebrate our nation’s independence by presenting a spectacular fireworks show and concert in Eisenhower Park on Saturday, June 28, 2014.
 
TD Bank will once again sponsor “Celebrate America” at the Harry Chapin Lakeside Theatre in Eisenhower Park. The fireworks, presented by the world-famous Fireworks by Grucci, are part of an unforgettable night in Eisenhower Park which kicks off at 5:30 p.m. with Dr. K’s Motown Revue followed by Uppercut, “The Ultimate Horn Powered Band” playing the best of Chicago, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Earth, Wind & Fire, Tower Of Power, Steely Dan, and James Brown.
 
“I would like to thank TD Bank for continuing to support this spectacular Independence Day celebration,” said County Executive Mangano. “The annual Fireworks Show and Concert here in beautiful Eisenhower Park is a great opportunity for our residents to come out and enjoy an incredible fireworks show and performances by Dr. K’s Motown Revue and Uppercut.”
 
The theatre area gates will open at 5:00 p.m. and the fireworks will begin at nightfall (approximately 9:30 p.m.). Tickets are required for admission to the Theatre area and are available beginning June 12th free of charge, at any TD Bank on Long Island, while supplies last. There is no formal seating; visitors should bring blankets or chairs. Space is limited and overflow will be directed to other viewing and parking areas.
 
In anticipation of Independence Day, County Executive Mangano and Acting Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter remind residents that fireworks awareness and prevention are important issues to discuss with their families. The possession, use, or sale of fireworks, including sparklers, is a violation of New York State Penal Law, and may be punishable as a misdemeanor or a felony. Parents should talk with their children about the destructive outcomes that can occur from playing with fireworks.
 
Fourth of July fireworks, although popular, can be extremely harmful. Fireworks statistics indicate that:
  • An estimated 8,700 people were treated in emergency rooms for fireworks-related injuries in the United States, in 2012.
  • Approximately 16% of all consumer fireworks injuries are caused by sparklers burning hands and legs, with the majority of these injuries occurring to young children.
  • Most of these injuries happen at the victims’ homes.
  • Fireworks can cause life threatening residential fires.
  • Children ages 5 to 9 years old have the highest rate of injuries related to fireworks.
There are many licensed professionals that perform fireworks presentations for the public, such as the “Celebrate America” show at Eisenhower Park. County Executive Mangano and Acting Police Commissioner Krumpter would like to wish the residents of Nassau County a happy and safe July 4th holiday.
