Runners in Fairport kick off the fourth of July with a bang. 

The Fourth of July is off to an active start in Fairport! Contestants laced up their sneakers early Friday for the Firecracker 4 Mile Race. The annual race was reduced to four miles this year due to road construction. The community is also celebrating with a parade which happened at 10:00am Friday morning and a "Party In The Park" all day!

Runners say the race is the perfect way to start Independence Day. "It's the fourth of july. you got to get a good start on the morning--it's going to be a long day of festivities out there, have a few extra pops at the end of the day," Joe Williams said.

The celebration continues at Perinton Park until 5:00pm Friday night. There are food, games and kids activities. Musical act "The Skycoasters" will be performing from 12:30pm to 4:30pm.
