DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. -- Last year Dobbs Ferry brought back the storied tradition of fireworks on the Fourth of July. This year, thanks in large part to donations from various residents and businesses, the fireworks are back again and will be held this Monday. The fireworks display will be held at Waterfront Park and the show will begin shortly after sunset. With many of the village offices and businesses being closed for the holiday, residents will have the whole day to celebrate the country's independence.
If fireworks aren't for you, there are still plenty of activities for the whole family this weekend in the villages. The Dobbs Ferry Farmer's Market will be on Cedar Street once again from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Friday. There will be vendors selling meat, cheese, wine, vegetables, fruit and more homegrown and fresh products. The Hastings Farmers Market takes place the next day on Saturday from 8:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Residents can come and shop in the Municipal Building's parking lot at seven Maple Avenue.
If you're looking to give back to the community, the Grace Episcopal Church in Hastings is hosting a free community meal on Saturday. The Grace Community Table is from 10:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Volunteers are encouraged to come by at 10:30 a.m. and lunch begins at 12 p.m. The lunch is open to all ages and faiths.
