There is no better way to end a day of barbecuing, relaxing, and celebrating America’s independence with a group of friends, than with a bang - we’re talking fireworks of course! There are plenty of places within Ulster County that you can enjoy the grand illumination and sparkle of some top notch firework displays or, you may even be able to enjoy a ~small~ show from the comfort of your backyard. Fireworks are just the grand finale to an awesome day and Ulster County doesn't disappoint when it comes to fun holiday-related community events.

So if you’re looking to experience Independence Day in Ulster County like a local, pack a picnic, grab a blanket and some folding chairs and map out your perfect holiday weekend afternoon and evening with Taft

“All was mountain and forest on every hand. Civilization seemed to have done little more than to have scratched this rough, shaggy surface

It’s hard to believe it, but it feels that somehow summer has slipped through our fingers and we’re sitting here looking at the calendar in disbelief- ‘How could Labor Day weekend have come so quickly once again?’

It’s easy to see how the end of summer could have snuck up on us this year.

There are plenty of places within Ulster County that you can enjoy the grand illumination and sparkle of some top notch firework displays or, now that New York State and Ulster County have passed new firework legislation as of 2015, you may even be able to enjoy a ~small~ show from the comfort of your backyard. Fireworks are just the grand finale to an awesome day and Ulster County doesn't disappoint when it comes to fun holiday community events.
