Central Astoria presents its Annual Independence Celebration featuring the Queens Symphony Orchestra followed by a spectacular Grucci Fireworks display!

I drove past this fireworks display last year and didn't get a chance to see it... so I'm doing it now. So lets celebrate Independence Day early at Astoria Park! We'll claim some space on the lawn and will stick a flag or sign somewhere so everyone can see us.

Since there are an insane amount of regulars from this group that live in the area, we'll get some food, drinks and just have a good time... Plus its FREE! So you can't beat that. :P

    It was great catching up with old friends and meeting all the new faces. The fireworks show was awesome and better then I expected.. lol We got a lot of people that live in Queens! So I'm glad I scheduled this on the site. Hope to see everyone that attended sometime down the road on future events. :)

    UPDATE: Hey everyone I updated the meetup location. We will be between 19th St and 23rd Ave on top of the park lawn. (Between pool and hellgate bridge). Look for Gemma and a colorful umbrella. I'll be the filipino guy wearing a brown leather cowboy hat and black meetup t-shirt. Hard to miss!!

    The nearest subway station is Astoria Ditmars on the N or Q line train. Just walk to the end of 23rd av and it will lead you right to Astoria park between Astoria pools and hellgate bridge.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
