Mangano To Host Fireworks Show And Concert At Lakeside Theatre

“Celebrate America” Presented by TD Bank

 

Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano today announced that Nassau County and TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank®, will celebrate our nation’s independence by presenting a spectacular fireworks show and concert in Eisenhower Park on Saturday, July 1, 2017.

 

TD Bank will once again sponsor “Celebrate America” at the Harry Chapin Lakeside Theatre in Eisenhower Park. The fireworks, presented by the Long Island based Grucci family, are part of an unforgettable night in Eisenhower Park which kicks off with a performance by Lamar Peters and his Ultimate Elvis Tribute at 6:00 p.m., followed by the Idol Kings, a Journey and John Mellenkamp Tribute Band. The world class Grucci fireworks show will begin at 9:30 p.m.

 

“I thank TD Bank for their continuous support, which makes our spectacular Independence Day celebration possible every year,” said Mangano. “The annual Fireworks Show and Concert here in beautiful Eisenhower Park is a great opportunity for our residents to come out and enjoy this ‘World Class’ fireworks show and performances by Lamar Peters and his Ultimate Elvis Tribute and Idol Kings, a Journey and John Mellencamp Tribute Band.”

 

The theatre area gates will open at 5:30 p.m. and the fireworks will begin at nightfall (approx. 9:30 p.m.). Tickets are available required for admission to the Theatre area. Tickets are available free of charge and may be picked up at any TD Bank on Long Island, while supplies last. There is no formal seating; visitors should bring blankets or chairs. Space is limited and overflow will be directed to other viewing and parking areas.

 

In anticipation of Independence Day, Nassau County Executive Mangano and the Nassau County Police Department reminds residents that fireworks awareness and prevention are important issues to discuss with their families. The possession, use, or sale of fireworks, including sparklers, is a violation of New York State Penal Law, and may be punishable as a misdemeanor or a felony. Parents should talk with their children about the destructive outcomes that can occur from playing with fireworks.

 

Fourth of July fireworks, although popular, can be extremely harmful. Fireworks statistics indicate that:

  • According to a U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission report, an estimated 11,400 injuries were reported during 2013, a staggering 31 percent climb compared to 8,700 injuries reported the year before.
  • Approximately 16% of all consumer fireworks injuries are caused by sparklers burning hands and legs, with the majority of these injuries occurring to young children.
  • Most of these injuries happen at the victims’ homes.
  • Fireworks can cause life threatening residential fires.
  • Children ages 5 to 9 years old have the highest rate of injuries related to fireworks.

 

There are many licensed professionals that perform fireworks presentations for the public, such as the “Celebrate America” show at Eisenhower Park. County Executive Mangano would like to wish the residents of Nassau County a happy and safe July 4th holiday.
