Bear Mountain Fireworks TONIGHT!
Unfortunately the 4th of July falls smack dab in the middle of the week this year and many places are having their celebrations on Tuesday (July 3rd) or Wednesday (July 4th). Bear Mountain is kicking off the 4th and the weekend with a fireworks celebration TONIGHT!
Usually the Bear Mountain fireworks celebration has a high in the sky show as well as a low to the land one. If you want to get the best of both (land and sky) it is best to go by car to Bear Mountain and find a spot in the field for the show. If you want to go by boat you will still get a spectacular show and the best place to anchor out is the little bay just south of the Bear Mountain Bridge on the Western side (see pic below).
Just a few things to remember if you will be going out tonight to watch the fireworks, make sure that you do not anchor in the way of the channel, ALWAYS check the tide – be sure you have enough anchor line out to compensate for which way the tide is going and last but not least it is not illegal to drink aboard a boat however it is illegal to be intoxicated while operating it.
HAVE FUN, BE SAFE AND ENJOY THE FIRST OF MANY 4TH OF JULY CELEBRATIONS TO COME!!!
