Please join us tonight for our annual Independence Day Fireworks Celebration at Louis Engel Waterfront Park!
The fun starts at 7PM, when KJ Denhert and her band will kick off our 2016 Summer Concert Series with some great tunes before the fireworks start at 9:15PM, and Powderfinger will keep the music going once the fireworks have ended.
We also have some great food vendors setting up at the waterfront, including Kona Ice, The Blue Pig Ice Cream, Wobble Cafe, Lonnie's Fish Fry, Tommy's Food Truck, Basta Pasta & Pizza, and Gyro Uno. Bring some chairs or a blanket and make a night of it with family, friends and neighbors!
Some last minute reminders:
- There will be no parking until after 12 midnight on the West side of the Ossining Train Station (the river side), but don't worry-- there are plenty of spots on the East side of the train tracks and on our side streets.
- Henry Gourdine Park will be open to watch the fireworks, but please be sure to stay on the grass and off of the rocks and pathways to ensure everyone's safety. There will also be a perimeter set up around the fireworks site, so be sure to keep back from the barricades for everyone's protection.
- Please respect our parks and be sure to clean up your area when the night is over. Our staff will be working hard all night, so please help them get home earlier to their families.
Looking forward to seeing everyone down at the waterfront, it's going to be a beautiful night in Ossining!

Another glorious week in Ossining is another opportunity to highlight so many good programs and projects here in our Town.
Yesterday, along with many of you, I attended the Ribbon Cutting at Henry Gourdine Park at the Harbor Square Residences at the Ossining Waterfront, and we were fortunate enough to avoid the forecasted rain. Henry was a real community treasure and we hope that the Village Park that now bears his name can also fill a similar role in connecting our community to the magnificent Hudson. Town Councilwomen Kim Jeffrey and Karen D'Attore and I were joined by Assemblywoman Sandy Galef, County Legislator Catherine Borgia, County Executive Rob Astorino, and of course, Village of Ossining Mayor Victoria Gearity and Village Trustee Quantel Bazemore, for this long-anticipated occasion. I am so glad to welcome this beautiful space into our inventory of park space in Ossining. A reception was held on the top story of Harbor Square after the ribbon cutting, and if you have yet to take a tour, I can't encourage you enough to do so. I will let this view speak for itself.
Both the Town and Village are hard at work to improve our beautiful waterfront. This week, my office continued work on a grant to install an ADA-compliant kayak launch at Louis Engel Park to add to the recreational activities we offer our residents. We hope, little by little, to add value to this already well-used space in our community.
On June 30th (next Thursday), we will be hosting our annual Fireworks Celebration at the waterfront, and preparations for the day are well underway. This event requires coordination across many agencies, and the work that happens behind the scenes is more than I ever expected! Preparations by our Recreation Superintendent, Parks and Highway/DPW in both the Town and Village, along with our first responders in the Ossining Police Department, Ossining Fire and OVAC, are well coordinated and we look forward to an exciting (and safe) night for everyone. Please remember that the bridges to the waterfront will be closed several hours before the show begins, so plan accordingly!
KJ Denhert and her band will get us started at 7PM, and the fireworks will start at 9:15PM. If you're still up for more excitement after the fireworks, Powderfinger will keep us grooving into the late hours once the fireworks end.
And the best news of all? (Fingers crossed) The forecast looks clear and warm, perfect weather to get together and spend a night at the waterfront. Check out the beautiful poster designed by Ossining’s own Brian Sheridan and come on down!
