FARMINGVILLE - A crowd of thousands was at the Pennysaver Amphitheatre at Bald Hill for a night of music and Fourth of July fireworks.

The Long Island Philharmonic performed at the Star Spangled Bash concert, which culminated in a fireworks display.

After facing monetary losses, the Town of Brookhaven asked for proposals to run the amphitheatre last year. This year's concert is the first under the direction of LI Events and CEO John Carraciolo.
