Grab your lawn chairs and head to Allegany State Park’s Quaker Beach area to celebrate our nation’s independence! The fun starts at 2:00 p.m. on July 3rd with a chicken barbecue (until sold out). Later on, listen to live music, enjoy vendors and spend time at the beach! Capping off this fun-filled night will be a spectacular fireworks display over the waters of Quaker Lake!
