FourthFest Fireworks at Coney Island
Why bother wrestling for a spot on the Hudson when Coney Island fires off its own show? Bring the family to the home of the Brooklyn Cyclones, where they'll munch on a pig roast (Mom and Dad can also enjoy a "Beers of New York" beer garden), enjoy a pre-fireworks performance by the String Ochestra of Brooklyn plus live music from local cover bands, compete in a contest to determine the winner of the Cyclones' "Fastest Arm in Brooklyn" on the speed pitch and of course, sit back and toast the big day with fireworks (9:30pm). Admission is free, but donations will be accepted to benefit the Brooklyn Public Library and #ConeyRecovers, a group of local organizations assisting the rebuilding of Coney Island. All ages.
