Top 5 Fireworks displays for the 4th of July


Author: DM Stram

Fireworks are probably one of the most beloved ways to celebrate the 4th of July. The tradition of watching fireworks and attending parades goes at least 100 years and when they are combined with a festival or concert, it helps make the holiday even more exciting. Since this is a time of year when schools are out, traveling to watch the fireworks is a fun activity for family fun that also helps to generate more interest in our country’s history. Go and visit your favorite city with an impressive fireworks display or perhaps take a trip to a new city you’ve never visited before. In any case, it will be an exciting bit of fun.

1. New York City

Many TV viewers tune in to watch the Macy’s Firework Spectacular in New York City, easily one of the most popular July 4th events in the country. About 2 million people gather to watch the fireworks, which are set off over the Hudson River and easily visible from several Upper West Side locations. The fireworks display is professionally choreographed with its own unique score. The display lasts for about 25 minutes in total. Several popular artists provide great entertainment ranging from R&B to country music, making the event one of the best ways to spend the 4th in New York or anywhere else. This is a fun way to experience one of America’s most fascinating cities. Though with anything involving New York plan ahead! (more…)

Mahopac’s Santini Drafted By NJ Devils


By Chuck Slater

Mahopac’s Steven Santini, who left Kennedy to join the U.S. Hockey developmental team after his sophomore year was an early pick by the New Jersey devils in the National Hockey League draft on Sunday, June 30.

The defenseman with a strong offensive presence was selected in the second round, the 42nd overall pick.  “I’m really excited,” the 18-year-old said. He had dozens of family and friends at his home listening to the draft.  “It’s a relief when your name is called,” he said.

“I guess he impressed people at the NHL combine in early June,” said his father, Stephen Santini Sr., who coached his son at Kennedy and is an off-ice official for the New York Rangers.

The son has a hockey scholarship to Boston College starting in the fall and the father confirmed he is intending to go to college rather than turn professional now.  The Devils will still hold rights to him when he graduates BC.
