Respecting the past, Building the future

2018 Astoria Park Fireworks

Despite rain all day, nature cooperated and Astorians are again treated to a wonderful firework show by Gucci.

Produced by Central Astoria Local Development Corp, we are again treated to a flawless performance. The Patriot Brass Ensemble gave us memorable renditions of Patriotic Songs, and featured a number of strong percussion solos.

The NYPD provided a strong presence, and the crowd was both enthralled and having a fun experience. Lots of cheering!!

Our community, in all its diversity, showed the rest of NYC what a real Independence day celebration should look like!
