The Comedy Competition kicks off at 7:00 pm on the main stage.  This year we received over 100 audition tapes and have narrowed it down to 5 finalists.  Each comedian will perform a 20 minute set and our celebrity judges will determine a winner.  Clips from each of our 5 finalists audition tapes can be found on our website, www.keeleykrackerz.com.  Be sure to check it out and come support your favorite!

Following the announcement of the winner of the Comedy Competition, the Fireworks Display will kick off promptly at 9:00 pm.  Everyone’s favorite part of the day, our fireworks display features over 40,000 fireworks coming from four barges in the East River and will last for approximately 30 minutes.  Don’t miss out!

Cost is $7.00 for adults, $3.00 for kids, and all children under 5 are free.  

100% of the proceeds benefit Keeley Krackerz “Krackerz for Kidz Foundation” which supports children diagnosed with cancer and their families.  Last year’s event raised over $300,000.

Looking forward to seeing all of you there!
