Celebrate America’s Independence like a true New Yorker! As July 4th approaches, families across the Tri-State area are looking to take advantage of their mid-week holiday with local festivities in lieu of a long weekend away. One easy destination for those seeking to commemorate America’s Independence Day is right in our backyard, Coney Island in Brooklyn. Just a short ride away via a luxury limousine service for those looking to escape sweltering Manhattan or for Long Island families looking to take part in classic July 4th festivities, Coney Island is always a great Independence Day choice.
Below we’ve outlined a perfect day of activities on Coney Island for the upcoming July 4th so that you can have some peace of mind before being picked up by a professional, luxury limousine service.
Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest
Starting with the women’s competition at 10:50am, the 2018 Nathan’s International Hot Dog Eating Contest is a perfect way to kick-off a day of patriotic activities. ESPN will begin their coverage of the men’s competition at 11:30am in anticipation of Champion Joey Chestnut’s return to defend “The Mustard Belt” against rivals Matt Stonie and 25-year old Carmen Cincotti.
So goes the legend, the first hot dog eating contest was held in 1916 by four immigrants as a way to prove who was the most patriotic. In 2010 it was revealed that the legend was created by famous spin-doctor Mortimor Matz, when in fact, the first contest was held in 1972. Nevertheless, the event receives scores of attendees, particularly those arriving via Delux Transportation’s limo service Long Island.
The Brooklyn Cyclones at MCU Park
The Brooklyn Cyclones, the Short Season Single-A affiliate of the New York Mets will be playing rivals the Aberdeen Ironbirds at MCU Park on Coney Island at 6:00p.m. MCU Park, located on Coney Island, features sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean as well as iconic amusement park landmarks including the Parachute Jump, Coney Island Cyclone and the Wonder Wheel. The old-school amusement park atmosphere of the stadium and ability to watch America’s past-time on July 4th make the Cyclones game a must-see event for those looking to celebrate Independence Day on Coney Island. While MCU park is accessible by the D,F,N and Q trains, we suggest continuing your day by arriving in an air-conditioned, comfortable luxury limousine service.
Coney Island Fireworks
While Coney Island hosts fireworks every Friday at 9:30-10:45pm from the last weekend in June through Labor Day weekend, the season’s grand display occurs on July 4th. Some of the best views of the fireworks display are from MCU park, but for the best non-stadium views, we suggest parking a blanket on the beach or catching a drink at another Coney Island stalwart, Ruby’s Bar.
