Last year I wrote a post about the 4th of July events in Lower Westchester and it was a huge success. I even had people calling me for directions. Although going to the city is great – the Westchester to NYC commute can be painful on a busy holiday. And there really isn’t any need -there is plenty to do right here in Westchester. Soooooo….here’s the list for 2010.
Fireman’s Parade – Mamaroneck NY – Rain date – July 1
Begins at 7 PM starting near the Mamaroneck Ave. School and includes 30-40 fire departments. www.villageofmamaroneck.ny.us
63rd Annual Fireman’s Carnival – Mamaroneck NY – June 29 – July 5 – 7 PM – Midnight
