Where to See the Fireworks

Morgan McGiven

    It’s debatable if most people’s minds this Fourth of July weekend will be filled with thoughts of the adoption of America’s Declaration of Independence from Great Britain. But fireworks displays originated to celebrate that freedom, after all, and they will no doubt be sought out and well attended. Weather permitting, they will blast off from somewhere on the South Fork each night through Saturday.

    On Saturday in Amagansett, the Devon Yacht Club’s annual display can be seen by nonmembers from beaches along Gardiner’s Bay around 9:15 p.m. Due to anticipated crowds, the bay beach between Barnes Hole Road and the club will be closed from 5 to 11 p.m.

    That night at 9, the Sag Harbor Yacht Club will sponsor a fireworks show visible from Marine Park, Havens Beach, or Long Wharf. Traffic delays are expected between 8 and 11 p.m. in the area of Bay Street and Division Street.

    At the North Sea Fire Department’s carnival off Noyac Road, the sparks will fly around 9:30 p.m. on Saturday.
