We’ve Found Your Fourth of July Fireworks

Posted on Jul 1, 2015 in Area Fun!, Local Trips

It’s that time of the year again. There’s an entire weekend ahead of us for grilling out, setting up yard games and enjoying whatever cold beverages you choose to enjoy on a summer’s day, all while celebrating the 239th anniversary of the founding of the United States of America.

Chances are that as your days turn to dusks and you’ve had your fill of summertime fare, there will this undeniable urge to load up the car with friends and family to track down the best place to watch as fireworks light up the night sky in true celebratory fashion. Here at Urban Corning, we’ve taken the initiative to put together a listing of the region’s biggest and best showings for your convenience. The work’s been done, all you need to do is choose your favorite location and be there.

As you can see below, Friday and Saturday are rife with potential. If you want to kickstart the holiday weekend, you can even enjoy some early fireworks at Ithaca’s Cass and Stewart Parks…because, well, Ithaca is always different like that.

July 4

Here’s to a great weekend, and an even better Independence Day. From all of us at Urban Corning, to all of you, Happy Fourth of July!
