July 4th Festivities in Greater Rochester

Our nation’s “birthday of independence” is quickly approaching! As we all know, celebrating the 4th of July in Rochester can be very eventful. From all the festivals, concerts, carnivals and fireworks, there is sure to be something going on for you and your family to attend this year. Still not sure what to do? We want to help! Here are some of our favorite July 4th festivities in Greater Rochester.

Irondequoit Fourth of July Festival

This annual festival, which takes place in the Irondequoit Town Hall Campus on 1280 Titus Avenue, is perfect for your family. The community will be setting up several interactive activities, from a hot dog eating contest to a reading of the Declaration of Independence (and of course, fireworks). This festival takes up Monday, July 3 and Tuesday, July 4th. This is a great event for all families, especially those with young kids.

Rochester will, of course, have their own fireworks display for fourth of July. Festivities will begin on the Main Street Bridge, from South Ave to Exchange Street.  The Judah Sealy Band and the RPO will be performing starting at 7:30 pm. The celebration ends with a stellar fireworks show. Celebrate with your fellow community in our beautiful city, and watch the fireworks over the magnificent bridge.

Conesus Lake Ring of Fire

On the July 3rd of every year, residents of Conesus Lake participate in what is known as the Ring of Fire, sponsored by the Conesus Lake Association. Residents light flames at the ends of their docks and/or their properties, and the town lights road flares. There is also a fireworks show in the middle of the lake towards the end of the night. People start lighting their flares around dusk, and fireworks usually go off shortly after. Visitors can watch from the Long Point Park on Rt 256, as well as Long Point Road. This is truly an amazing experience, as the community comes together to light the ring, and the fireworks display over the water is truly a unique sight!sunset-51890_1920
