As Independence Day is less than a week away, how will you be celebrating the festivities? Here on Long Island, you will never be without something to do this 4th of July weekend. All over Long Island, there will be plenty of Festivals, BBQs, Camping, Fun in the Sun and of course, Firework Shows.
If you live in Smithtown and like camping, go down to Short beach and set up your tent. You will be able to see all the firework shows from Northport over to Bridgeport and possibly more.
You will need a permit from the town to set up a tent on the beach.
This show is a family tradition in my house. here are a few tips I've learned over the years. Remember to bring lawn chairs and blankets and come early to get a spot. There are no coolers allowed here and if you have to park at a distance there are shuttle buses proving transportation from various spots.
