Long Island's 2013 4th of July Guide: The Best Independence Day Celebrations on LI
Fireworks, Festivities, Food, and More for LI!
The nation’s favorite major summer holiday is just around the corner - that’s right, it’s almost Independence Day! Americans celebrate the Fourth of July in accordance to the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776 in Philadelphia - the former thirteen states declared their freedom from British governance. July 4, 1777, the one year anniversary of our independence,  was celebrated with music, ringing bells, bonfires, and fireworks. Ever since, Americans continue the tradition in celebrating their freedom by taking part in some fun and entertaining events in commemoration. Long Islanders gather together for some of the largest celebrations in the country. These fast-approaching festivities include fairs, carnivals and festivals to concerts and sports games to picnics, cruises, and of course the stars of the day - FIREWORKS! Don’t miss out on the fun - check out what’s happening near you and across Long Island!
