Joe, Amanda, Alessia, and Gianna Valencia were just one of many families on hand Monday celebrating July 4 at the Mamaroneck Fire Departments Carnival.
Last years festivities were rained out so the Mamaroneck family was happy to restart its long-running tradition.
We come every year, Joe said. Its about tradition.
He called the fireworks on the Sound "one of the best kind of shows around.
Alessia is fond of the Dracula Coaster, and snow cones, while Gianna favors the candy apples and the fireworks display.
They make the loud sound, Gianna said. Theyre pretty.
