LYNDONVILLE – Young Explosives put on about a 40-minute fireworks show in Lyndonville on Saturday, the biggest in the 41 years the community has hosted a July Fourth celebration.

Young Explosives does about 100 fireworks shows on the holiday weekend and Lyndonville’s is the second biggest after Rochester’s.

Lyndonville had this fire truck and a group of firefighters close by the high school sports fields while the fireworks lit up the sky.

Walt Snell, a Lyndonville firefghter, climbed on top of the truck to watch the fireworks.

A big crowd came out for the fireworks. The Lyndonville Lions Club is the main organizer for the annual festival with help from several other community groups and the Village of Lyndonville and Town of Yates.

The fireworks were red, white, blue and other colors.
