There are plenty of activities and events you can do right on Staten Island for the weekend of 4th Of July! Kick off the weekend at Staten Island Yankee Ballpark! July 1st to the 4th, after the Staten Island Yankees games, there will be a firework show right from the stadium. You’ll be able to see the fireworks displayed against the Manhattan Skyline!

On July 2nd, Conference House Park will light up the South Shore. Why go there? Because besides just a firework show that begins at 9:20 pm, there will also be a free concert that starts at 6 pm, hosted by Patrick Rafferty, Frank James, Rock-A-Silly Band, and more!

Start your Independence Day off by attending Staten Island's very own Fourth of July Parade, also know as the Travis Parade. Regardless of the weather, the parade will carry on at 4108 Victory Blvd at 12 pm. It is a friendly showcase of Staten Island performers and patriotism. 

There are various amazing spots to watch the fireworks on the Island! You can experience the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks right near the Staten Island Ferry; drive down to be there before 9:20 pm to see the fireworks coming from the East River and South Street Seaport. 

Rather a more definitive location? Head on over to the Alice Austen House, 2 Hylan Blvd, for the Philharmonic Concert and Fireworks! From 6 pm to 10 pm, enjoy this event hosted by the Historic Alice Austen House! 

Have a great Fourth of July weekend!
