The 59th annual Shelter Island Fireworks are not the only exciting event occurring this weekend as the efforts and vision of Shelter Island Fireworks, Inc. and local businesses will infuse the weekend with excitement and community.

Prior to the fireworks, which take place on Saturday at Crescent Beach, the Shipwreck Bar at SALT restaurant will host a party on Friday, July 8 complete with a barbeque, 50/50 raffle, live music and raffle for a paddleboard (tickets are $20).

Following the fireworks on July 9, the Tavern will host a celebration with live music from 10 p.m. to midnight. On Sunday, the Pridwin will offer a post-fireworks brunch.

The triad of events, dubbed the “Passport to Paradise” by event organizer Kelly Surerus, offers a koozie to all those who sign up. Those who get their koozie stamped at all three events will receive a free mimosa at the Pridwin brunch on July 10.
