Yes, there will be July 4th fireworks on the Hudson River. This Star Spangled Spectacular Fireworks is at the Yonkers Downtown Waterfront. It’s a great alternative to fighting the crowds for the Macy’s July 4th Fireworks on the East River.
And it’s convenient. The revitalized Yonkers Downtown Waterfront is just three blocks from the MetroNorth station, and there are loads of restaurants, many with outdoor cafes to catch the Hudson River river breeze and great views of the pyrotechnics.
Here are two more alternatives to the Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks:
- July 4th Fireworks at Coney Island, at Steeplechase Pier.
- Staten Island Philharmonic and Fireworks, at Alice Austin House
The Yonkers July 4th events start at 5PM with an Independence Day party with family friendly activities and live musical entertainment.
Here’s the schedule until the fireworks at 9:15PM:
Live Music Performances @ Waterfront Amphitheater Stage
5:00 to 6:00 PM – Emilyn Brodsky
6:00 to 7:30 PM – Willie Villegas Y Entre Amigos
