Get ready to ooh and aah when spectacular fireworks illuminate the sky over Playland Park this summer season.

County Executive George Latimer said: “After being closed to the public for the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I am excited to welcome thousands of people from all over Westchester County back to a Playland to gather for Friday night fireworks. It’s a summer tradition to cap off a day at the park with celebratory fireworks.”

Fireworks displays over Long Island Sound will take place Friday, July 9, at 9:15 p.m. and then every Friday evening through Sept. 3 with a final show on Sunday, Sept. 5, at Playland Park in Rye. All shows start at 9:15 p.m.

Commissioner Kathy O’Connor said: “Whether you come for the rides at the park or a dip at the beach and stay for the fireworks, you get a lot of bang for your buck.”

For the season’s full schedule and admission prices, go to or call the park at (914) 813-7010. Parking is $10.
