Reservations may be required for many things "Hamptons," but even without reservations, you can get a great seat for one of the many local fireworks displays happening over the next week. Although crowds are likely, fireworks on the East End will yet again enthrall spectators for a good part of the summer.

At 9:30 p.m., Sag Harbor Yacht Club will display its John A. Ward Independence Day celebration fireworks. Although crowds of people will likely be at Long Wharf, Marine Park, and Havens Beach to see the show, the display will also be visible from areas around Sag Harbor Village. Rain date: July 2.

The North Sea Fire Department has scheduled fireworks for around 10 p.m. on Saturday, and then again on Monday. Spectators will be treated to a luminous display on Noyac Road over the fire department's annual carnival, which is being held this year between Thursday and Monday.

Those who make the trip to Shelter Island can see a July 8 fireworks show that is completely funded by private donors who sought to keep tradition alive after the island's Chamber of Commerce decided not to sponsor it.

July 15 

Despite talk of last year being the final Great Bonac Fireworks Show, the Clamshell Foundation's display over Three Mile Harbor will nonetheless go on again this year. The Grucci display will begin at 9:30 p.m., and can be seen from many locations around the harbor, including Maidstone Park, Gann Road, Sammy's Beach, any of the beaches off Hand's Creek or Springy Banks Road, and the head of Three Mile Harbor.

August 26

Nearing the end of the summer season, the East Hampton Fire Department will sponsor its annual firework show at East Hampton's Main Beach. The show normally attracts a big crowd to send summer off with a bang.
