Patchogue Lions – 4th of July Ceremony
July 4 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
The Patchogue Lions have be coordinating the 4th of July Parade in Patchogue for over 60 years. This year, we cannot have a parade due to the Covid-19 situation.
As a result, the Patchogue Lions is instead holding a safe, socially distant 4th of July Ceremony on July 4. This event will be held at the Patchogue Famous Four Corners (the corner of Main Street and North Ocean Ave.). It will be simulcast live over the Patchogue Chamber of Commerce Facebook page.
We will be starting at 10:30 AM with our Opening Ceremonies followed by a patriotic program. We expect the event to run for about 30 – 40 minutes. We will be featuring music from the Atlantic Concert Band led by Ed Albinski and the event will be flanked by members of the Patchogue Fire Department along with a 40 foot American flag. An honor guard will be provide by members of Amvets, Jayne Lattin Post 2913 VFW, and the American Legion. The program will start at 10:30 AM and will be:
