What’s Happening in Montauk Fourth of July Weekend?

A long weekend with plenty of long and lots of weekend (and also fireworks)

Fourth of July 2019 is more than a long weekend. It is a marathon. The holiday itself comes in the middle of the week. You may already be weekending as you read this. We’ve got what you need to pace yourself. Between fireworks, concerts, art openings and pop-ups popping, these next five to seven to ten days are jam-packed. Whether it’s a morning boxing class, an evening meditation or post weekend Tuesday pilates class, you are in it for the long haul.

Photos you take of fireworks with your phone never look as good as you think they will.

One word of caution though. Photos you take of fireworks with your phone never look as good as you think they will. You’re better off just watching the fireworks with your regular eyeballs.
