Fourth of July fireworks and festivities are fun for humans, hard on pets

Pierre Claeyssens Veterans Foundation is again pleased to be hosting the 55th annual Fourth of July Parade along State Street and the free evening concert at the Santa Barbara Courthouse Sunken Gardens.

In keeping with the Independence Day tradition, thousands are expected to gather on the Greenville Town Common today for a celebration music, fun, food and fireworks - but for the first time in 46 years, the Greenville Jaycees will not be responsible for organizing it.

There will be music from the Schenectady County Orchestra and members of the Empire State Youth Orchestra CHIME program starting at 7 pm. There will also be live music, festivities, a reading of the Declaration of Independence and entertainment in the surrounding areas.
