Independence Day will go off with a bang — but one day later in Montauk and Southampton.

The Stars Over Montauk fireworks display has been postponed until Saturday due to forecasted storms, the Montauk Chamber of Commerce announced on Thursday afternoon. The show will take place Saturday at 9 p.m. on Umbrella Beach, which is 1/8 mile west of the center of downtown Montauk.

Southampton’s fireworks, part of the fund-raiser for the Southampton Fresh Air Home, have also been moved to its rain date of Sunday. The benefit will now take place from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Sunday, and the Grucci fireworks will begin at dusk, according to the event's coordinator at the Fresh Air Home.

Another fireworks show, scheduled for Thursday at the North Sea Fire Department's carnival at its Memorial Athletic Field, is so far still on for 10 p.m.

This weekend's shows in Sag Harbor and Amagansett will go on as scheduled on Saturday as of this writing.
