The City of Rochester will kick off their annual fireworks extravaganza downtown at the High Falls District beginning at 10 p.m. and running nightly for 20 minutes between May 22 and 24.  The Memorial Day Weekend laser and light show will be set to a program of all-patriotic music.

The laser light show debuts again on July 2 and 3 to celebrate Independence Day weekend and  will run each Thursday through Saturday until Labor Day from 10 p.m. to 10:20 in tribute to Rochester’s historical, artistic and sports figures.

While in the Historic High Falls District, be sure to stop by the Triphammer Grill or McFadden’s, before or after the light show, for a bite to eat or a drink.
