Historic Richmond Town’s 4th of July

If you want to experience what life was like the year America declared its independence, then head over to Staten Island for the Historic Richmond Town’s 4th of July Independence Day Weekend celebration. Between learning about what that time period was like — from costumed historians, soldiers, and founding fathers — people will also have the chance to make their own flags to wave in a pinwheel parade. Patrons will have the opportunity to sign and participate in a dramatic reading of the Declaration of Independence, and then afterwards can learn how to churn ice cream.

When: July 2 through July 4th, from 10 am to 4 pm

Where: Historic Richmond Town, 441 Clarke Ave, Staten Island, NY, 10306

Tickets: Day Passes start at $15. For more information visit

The Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Show

Probably the quintessential event celebrating the 4h of July is Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Show. The extravaganza will include 65,000 shells launched from five different barges on the East River — a show known for a multitude of dramatic colors and shapes in the sky.

Before the 25 minute fireworks show, the Young People’s Chorus of New York City will belt out the “Star-Spangled Banner” from The United States Army Field Band & Soldiers’ Chorus. Brett Eldredge, Carly Pearce and Pitbull are also expected to perform.

When: Monday July 4th starting at 8 pm Fireworks begin at 9:25 pm

Where: The fireworks are set to launch at the East River, centered around Midtown Manhattan. Some places to watch the show include Gantry Plaza State Park in Long Island City and Brooklyn Bridge Park, Newtown Barge Park and Transmitter Park in Brooklyn.
