Crackling of firecrackers, the searing sound of bottle rockets and shine of sparkling sparklers sets the tone for summer. Not the 21st day of June and certainly not the first 90-degree day, although some would beg to differ.
I remember as a child trekking out to Jones Beach to watch fireworks, at least before it kept getting canceled and the church up the block from my house would put on a show as well.
The Fourth of July celebrations can’t get here quick enough and even though Mineola will wait until the first Friday after Independence Day, it will be well worth it. The Village of Mineola will hold a fireworks show on Friday, July 6. Fireworks will begin after the Nassau Pops concert concludes. All residents and their guests are invited to attend the concert and view the fireworks show from Memorial Park.
Last year was truly a site to see. In what rivaled bigger fireworks showcasings, Mineola lit up the sky for all to see. Anyone and everyone was at Memorial Park last year, packing in on the main lawn and parts of the grounds of Jackson Avenue School.
Expect much of the same in 2012.
