Beachfront Fireworks - Long Island 4th of July Celebration
Jones Beach State Park

Saturday, July 4th
$10 per vehicle
A treasured summer tradition returns to Jones Beach State Park for the first time since 2009 this holiday weekend, less than 20 minutes from The Inn at Fox Follow. For the last 5 years, if they wanted to see a properly impressive display of 4th of July fireworks, Long Island visitors and residents had to venture all the way to the shores of Brooklyn. But not anymore! The July 4th Fireworks Spectacular at Jones Beach is back - and it's going to be even better than ever!
How to Celebrate the Holiday
Get to the beach as early as possible and make a day of it. Long Islanders love their summers, and no day by the water more than the Fourth. This year promises to be quite crowded (with upwards of 100,000 people in the park by the time the fireworks start), so pack a picnic, bring a blanket, some folding chairs, towels, and dig your feet in the sand for a festive afternoon. In fact, everyone ages 21 and older is even allowed to have a 12oz alcoholic beverage on the beach!
About the Show
Slated to start promptly at 9:30pm, the intricate sky dance of pyrotechnics from Garden State Fireworks will last approximately 30 minutes. Be sure you have a radio so you can tune-in to WALK 97.5 or K-98.3FM for a patriotic simulcast soundtrack, as rainbow colors sparkle in synchronized splendor over the Atlantic.
