The 4th of July is just around the corner. It’s one of our favorite days of summer, and there are so many ways to celebrate. We’ve put together a list of things happening out & about and some stay-at-home alternatives. As we celebrate our Nation’s Independence, we want to thank those who have fought for our freedom. Wishing everyone much fun & time with loved ones this 4th! Check out our revised guide to July 4th Penfield NY!
For the Hit-the-Towners
So you wanna get up and get out to celebrate this year! We hear ya loud & clear! There are TONS of great festivities happening around town, here are some of the highlights:
Celebrate our Nation’s Independence with an All-American game of baseball! The Rochester Redwings will be playing a home game versus the Buffalo Bisons. The game starts at 7:15, and they’ll finish off the night with some awesome fireworks! Get there early for a pre-game autograph! The players will also have patriotic uniforms that will be auctioned off, so get in on the game!
Just so happens that we’re a trendsetter town with our celebrations on Saturday, July 2nd. Here are a few of the details:
Penfield: Parade at 10am; PHS to Penfield Community Center; Featuring: Penfield Fire Company & Band, Gates Keystone Club Police Pipes & Drums, Towpath Volunteers Fife & Drum, Downbeat Percussion, Hit Men Brass Band, and more!

For the Stay-at-Homers
Looking for a more mellow 4th of July? With a hectic schedule, we sure can’t blame you! If you don’t want to navigate a crowded parking lot, or you need to stay home to console your anti-firework puppy, you can still have a great 4th:
Food for the Fourth
From breakfast all the way until late night snacks, we’ve got some star-spangled ideas from Betty Crocker. Of course she has a great guide that includes tons of recipes! One of them is sure to be in your wheelhouse.
Game on for the 4th
Watermelon Seed Spitting Contest
This game is for kids of all ages. For the record, an 83 year old won last year. Kill two birds with a dessert that doubles as a fun activity. And, it turns out watermelon is good for you.
Water Balloon Mayhem
It’s time to up your water balloon game, especially since you can buy an apparatus that fills and ties them off for you! (you’re welcome). We love the idea of water balloon volleyball and water balloon squat relay that we found on Time2saveworkshops.com.
Whatever your plans for this 4th of July, we hope you & your family enjoy! We are so thankful to be part of this community and this great nation.
