Fourth of July celebrations across the Rochester region


ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — The Rochester area celebrated its first full-fledged Fourth of July in two years Sunday night.

Rochester residents closed out the holiday by enjoying the buzzing of a dazzling drone show across the sky of High Falls in Rochester. The city displayed nighttime fireworks along the riverway late Sunday evening.

The area was full of festivities, ranging from parades and shows to live music displays and games. The towns of Henrietta, Greece and Irondequoit all held their own celebrations, pulling hundreds to enjoy Independence Day.

Irondequoit celebrated with the “largest July 4th parade in Monroe County,” stretching from sunrise to sunset as it led up to its famous annual fireworks display from the Town Hall campus.

Henrietta residents kicked-off the holiday with a craft and garage sale, followed by live music presented by Brass Taxi and concluded with a fireworks display provided by Young Explosives.
