Editorial: Summer Starts When The Sky Is Lit

While June 21 is considered the official start of summer, the real fun doesn’t kick off until bottle rockets, firecrackers, roman candles, sparklers and jumping jacks are lighting the night sky on July 4th, honoring the adoption of the Declaration of Independence 238 years ago. Rarely does it rain on July 4th (we’re having a hard time remembering when it did), which makes the night that much more sweet. You can step out your door and find a fireworks celebration almost anywhere in Nassau County.

 

Sitting in a lawn chair on the Village Green in Farmingdale for the concert series (this year it’s on July 9) marks a time-honored tradition of lounging around, forgetting about the work week ahead. The cotton candy and toy cart makes its way around the perimeter of the park, while the Good Humor and Mister Softee trucks sit nearby, giving the kids a bridge between the music and firework-filled sky. The Nassau Pops put on quite a show each year.

 

From kid smiles to adult “aaahhs,” Independence Day pushes families towards the heart of summer, one pop and sizzle at a time.
