Patriotic parades held on LI for Fourth of July

OYSTER BAY - Many Long Island communities marked the Fourth of July with traditional parades, which meant flags, fireworks and family fun were in store for everyone.

The Oyster Bay Independence Day Parade kicked off this morning along East Main Street, ending up at former President Theodore Roosevelt's home on Sagamore Hill.

Following the parade, residents enjoyed an afternoon of events at Roosevelt's historic home. Veterans, kids, and even an impersonator of our 26th president all celebrated with pride.

Other parades were held in Southampton and Port Jefferson.
