Grab your lawn chairs and head to the Allegany State Park Quaker Beach area to celebrate our nation’s independence! The fun starts at 4 p.m. on July with a chicken barbecue (until sold out) by the Coldspring Volunteer Fire Department.

From 4 to 6 p.m., park interpretive staff will be on hand to “Ask the Naturalist.” They’ll have lots of cool things to look at and will be available to answer your nature-related questions.

At 7 p.m. rock out to the sounds of local favorite, Goodbye Dawn.

Capping off this fun-filled night will be a spectacular fireworks display over the waters of Quaker Lake— a sight definitely not to be missed! While you’re there, don’t forget to check out the Quaker Bathhouse and playground – brand new additions to the park in 2016!
