2012 East End Fireworks Guide

A fireworks show draws a crowd from near and far. As it turns out, on the East End, it's not just the Fourth of July when there's an opportunity to see a display of lights in the sky. Explosive pyrotechnics pop-off from Montauk to Westhampton all summer long, so you'll have plenty of chances to catch a show.

I'm glad that your Foundation helps people and programs on the East End. I often think how much money is spent on these fireworks all over the area at this time of year, and how many people are hungry and our schools need money. I went on your website but was not able to see exactly what charitable programs you have out here that are supported by the donations for the fireworks.

I don't know what show it was. Could it have been a private show that we were lucky enough to see?
