The star-studded fireworks show will be a truly magical extravaganza. Accompanied by classic patriotic music, the fireworks will be visible from all areas of the park. The best seating is available on either soccer field. Bring your lawn chairs and beach towels to sit on to enjoy the fireworks display.

Beth Atalay I know what you mean, Beth. It's like the year is moving at the speed of lightning. Mint Hill Madness is one of the area's oldest festivals and very popular... thousands attend, but I've never been able to find any statistics on how many.

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 hi Sheila and Larry... you can just best the crowds will be out in full force in Mint Hill this weekend. I wouldn't mind seeing the fireworks show, but can't bring myself to show up 2-3 hours just to wait for it and then deal with the traffic going home.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel hi Alexandra... I've enjoyed fireworks on a yacht in the NY Harbor and that was amazing to see and no crowds to deal with. One of the best displays I ever saw was on Bastille Day in Strasbourg.... just sitting in the main park. And I stumbled on that quite accidentally. Interestingly the crowds were not huge.
