During your stay at our Long Island Wine Country bed & breakfast, don’t miss out on the local Independence Day celebrations. Southold and Greenport will be hosting fun 4th of July events.
Southold, NY 4th of July Parade 2012
At noon on Wednesday, July 4th, the Southold Village Merchants will have their 15th Annual 4th of July Parade. Arrive before the festivities to get a good spot and enjoy a good old fashioned 4th of July parade. Wave a flag as the marching bands, classic cars, floats and red, white & blue riders on horseback pass by to cheers and applause. The route will start at Boisseau Avenue and continue to Tucker Lane Route 25. For more information, call (631) 765-4100.
2012 Greenport Carnival and Fireworks
Only five minutes from the inn, Greenport’s annual Carnival will offer a wide range of fun events, rides and games from July 3-7. The Greenport Carnical is open every evening from 6-11 p.m. at Moore’s Lane. Get on the carousel and have that once-a-year elephant ear or your favorite forbidden carnival treat! It’s a worthy cause too; the event raises funds for Greenport’s 7th Relief Hose Co. & Phenix Hook & Ladder Co #1.
There will be spectacular fireworks displays not only on the 4th of July, but also on Saturday, July 7th at 10 p.m. Arrive a bit earlier to the rear of the Green Port High School grounds at 720 Front Street if you want to watch the fireworks up close. Whatever spot you choose, bring your picnic blanket and goodies to enjoy with the show. If the merriment of a 4th of July crowd isn’t your style, you can always watch the fireworks as you stroll the nearby beaches.
Before the evening events, you can arrive during the day to experience downtown Greenport, NY. The fine seafood restaurants will be open and quaint stores beckon with antiques and unique arts and crafts.
After all the excitement of the North Fork 4th of July, you’ll love returning to your comfortable bed at our Long Island, NY accommodations.
