Fireworks Display & Entertainment Returns to the City of Kingston Fourth of July Celebration
KINGSTON, NY – Mayor Steven T. Noble is pleased to announce that there will be a fireworks display on the Fourth of July in the City of Kingston. Sponsored by O’Connor & Partners and Ole Savannah, the fireworks will be set off from a barge in the Rondout Creek just after dark, and will be visible from T.R. Gallo Park.
This year, the Independence Day celebration will include pre-fireworks entertainment, sponsored by Mainetti & Mainetti. Starting at 5:00pm, The Bill’s Toupee Band, a pop/dance cover band, will play on the City stage in T.R. Gallo Park before the fireworks display.
“We are thrilled that O’Connor & Partners and Ole Savannah are sponsoring the fireworks for the Fourth again this year. We also have music courtesy of Mainetti & Mainetti to make this community event even more of a special celebration,” said Mayor Noble. “I encourage everyone to support our waterfront businesses and make your way downtown early to enjoy our fantastic restaurants and shop our wonderful local businesses. I also want to remind everyone that parking will be extremely limited, so please walk, bike, carpool, or take the shuttle, if possible. A big thank you to Ulster County Area Transit, which is providing free shuttle service to and from the waterfront all evening. Looking forward to a festive Fourth!”
Parking will be limited. UCAT will run a free shuttle service, making regular pick-ups from the Kingston Plaza (adjacent to the ballfield off of Westbrook Lane), from the Cornell Street parking lot (Thomas Street lot near Little Italy), and along Broadway at the Governor Clinton, the Andy Murphy Center, and Yosman Towers, dropping off at Garraghan Drive. There will also be a continuous shuttle from the parking lot at Kingston Point Beach. Busses will start picking up at 5:00pm and the last bus will depart the Rondout at 11:30pm.
