North Hempstead Memorial Day Fireworks Extravaganza Slated for May 28
North Hempstead, NY – Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the Town Board are excited to announce that the Memorial Day Fireworks and Commemoration Ceremony, with its sponsor NEFCU, will be held at North Hempstead Beach Park on Saturday, May 28.
This year, the Memorial Day Fireworks and Commemoration Ceremony will feature members representing the Girl Scouts of Nassau County leading the pledge, as well as musical entertainment from two bands: Unforgettable Fire, a U2 tribute band; and FiveStone, who will be playing popular songs from the 80s. Scenic North Hempstead Beach Park offers a boardwalk along the water and picnic areas so visitors can enjoy a start to the summer season.
“Our Memorial Day Fireworks Ceremony is always a wonderful way to kick off the summer,” said Supervisor Bosworth. “By recognizing our Veterans we have the opportunity to pay tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice fighting for our freedom.”
The program will start at 6 p.m. Fireworks will begin at darkness.
The event is free but vehicles will be charged a $10 parking fee. For more information, please visit www.northhempsteadny.gov or call 311 or (516) 869-6311.
