What’s a Fourth of July celebration without watching fireworks!

I love watching the fireworks.  Setting up my chair and blankets, getting out some snacks!  Then there are the “ooohs and ahhhhs” as the fireworks hit the sky!  I just love it.

This year, with July 4th on a Monday, I wondered where and when the fireworks would take place.  So, I did a little research for you, and I found out that we can watch fireworks and celebrate ALL weekend - all over the capital region.

Here are a couple I thought looked fun!

Friday July 1st -  Freedom Park in Scotia:  See Jimmy featuring Alan Payette perform.  At dusk – Fireworks!!

Saturday, July 2nd - The Great Escape's July 4th weekend celebration!! Hit the rides during the day, and fireworks at dusk!

Monday July 4th -  Clifton Park July 4th Celebration at Clifton Common, from 12:00pm to 10:00pm!  Rides all day - even pony rides, fried dough and of course fireworks at dusk!

This is just a sample of the events happening all weekend.  Check out the full list of Fireworks in the Capital Region!
