Monday we celebrate our Independence Day. And if you're and in the mood for some good old-fashioned parades brimming with Americana to wind up the weekend, the New Suffolk and Southold Fourth of July parades won't let you down.
New Suffolk's parade starts at Tuttle and New Suffolk Roads at 11 a.m. and features a submarine float that touches on the history of the former submarine base on the waterfront — the first one established in the U.S. in 1899. This event is put on by the New Suffolk Civic Association.
Southold will be draped in red-white-and-blue everywhere with its parade starting at , located at 55575 Route 25 Southold at noon. The Southold Village Merchants hosts the traditional Fourth of July parade, which ends at Tuckers Lane.
