Are you ready for the annual pre-show? On July 4th America celebrates our birthday, but there's a dress rehearsal and it occurs on Orchard Beach, which can be also be viewed from City Island, NYC.

#Fireworks display on a barge on Pelham Bay off Orchard Beach tomorrow, 6/29, at 9:20 PM. In the case of rain, fireworks will take place today at Orchard Beach, which is part of Pelham Bay Park.

More than three times the size of Manhattan's Central Park, Pelham Bay Park is the City's largest park property. Visitors to the park enjoy miles of bridle paths and hiking trails, Orchard Beach, the Bartow-Pell Mansion, two golf courses, and a breathtaking 13-mile saltwater shoreline that hugs Long Island Sound.

Athletes frequent its numerous fields and courts while children frolic in its playgrounds. Pelham Bay Park also has a wide and diverse range of plant and animal life and features prime locations to view the nature's most skillful hunters, the osprey.

Walk a mile or two on the land that has passed through the hands of the Siwanoy Indians, Ann Hutchinson, and the Continental Army, to name a few. Visit Pelham Bay Park today.
