Fourth of July Events on Long Island

Fireworks, parades and plenty more Independence Day events across the Island.

The Fourth of July is just around the corner, which means barbecues, beaches and, of course, fireworks.

We don't want you wandering the streets looking for patriotic fun on Independence Day, so Patch put together this guide of events taking place across the Island as part of our 2012 Long Island Summer Guide.

(Note: All events being held on July 4.)

Port Jefferson: A parade down Main Street, sponsored by the Port Jefferson Fire Department, begins at 10 a.m. 

Concert in the Park
New Life Crisis will perform at Coopers Beach from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. as part of Southampton Cultural Center's Summer "Concerts in the Park Series."

Independence Day Celebration
The National Park Service and the Friends of Sagamore Hill invite you to celebrate Independence Day at Sagamore Hill National Historic Site. Independence Day was an important holiday for Theodore Roosevelt. After speaking at the festivities in Oyster Bay, TR would gather his extended family and friends at Sagamore Hill for a day of patriotic celebration. This year's celebration will feature a variety of exciting programs beginning at 11 a.m. and ending at 4 p.m., all of which are free and open to the public. 

The Blues Brotherhood
The Blues Brotherhood, a tribute to the Blues Brothers, covers the best material from the original "Blues Brothers" as well as other classic blues, funk, and soul tunes in a show at Ammann Riverfront Park in Riverhead. So hold on to your hats (and shades, for that matter) as the boys capture the sound, energy and persona that propelled the original "Blues Brothers" into the phenomenon that still thrills audiences around the world. Show starts at 7 p.m.

To whom it may concern: The ONLY real fireworks are fireworks that are shot off on open barges in the ocean waters. The rest are just plain and blah.....

No. There haven't been Jones Beach fireworks for a couple of years now. There will be Grucci fireworks on the bay, with the best view being from the boats at Captree State Park. There's a ton of info at www.captreefleet.com.
