Independence Day is almost here! If you’re scrambling to find something to do, we’ve got you covered. Celebrate the Fourth of July at these all-American events, which include a party on Pier 16 with great views of the Macy’s fireworks. Families can also join a children’s parade in Harlem or dance along to music by the Amigos at FDR Four Freedoms Park.


Help the kiddos start their morning right with Yoga for Kids presented by Land Yoga. Then take a ride on a fire truck and play in the water as a hose sprinkles the entire block! The parade itself lasts all morning, at Morningside Drive and 115th Street, above Morningside Park. All ages.
