7. Watch the historic Travis Parade

The Staten island Ferry is a great activity and way to get to the Travis Parade.

After taking the Staten Island Ferry, travel to the village of Travis to watch the Travis Parade. The Travis Parade has occurred since 1911 and is a staple of the Staten Island Fourth of July celebrations. Following the parade, pass the time at Historic Richmond Town to learn some history about Staten Island before watching the fireworks show at Empire Outlets.

The parade will begin at noon in Independence Park. After departure, members of the organizing committee, elected officials, and others will travel in their respective vehicles through the crowds.
