Fourth of July weekend is a time to celebrate.
Whether you're having a barbecue with family and friends, hanging at a local park or beach, chowing down on lobster rolls or ice cream, or just relaxing and watching the fireworks, we want to see your photos. You can share them here.
And, if you're looking for weekend ideas, you'll find plenty of great things to do around Long Island in our Fourth of July guide. (Captions are submitted by readers who share their photos.)
