Ithaca's Fourth of July fireworks show will be held on the First of July, in Dryden.
For a couple of years now, the Ithaca show has been generously hosted by the TC3 campus in Dryden, after Ithaca College declined the honor anymore, after a roof went on fire one year from a misfire. (We were on a blanket right next to it; it was pretty riveting.)
The show has always been held off-date, which is cheaper.
TCAT promises a fleet of buses leaving from Green Street for public transport round trips.
Like the midnight movie show that starts at 12 a.m., and noon Mass that starts at 12 p.m., the fireworks show starts when it is dark.
