Greenacres celebrated another great Independence Day on the morning of July 4th with games, food, fun and a patriotic display. Though early morning rain threatened to cancel the well-planned event, skies cleared and the Greenacres Neighborhood Association, led by Kathy Steves, produced a morning of fun that was enjoyed by everyone from babies in strollers to seniors.
There were spoon races, a candy hunt, a three-legged race, a sack race, multiple heats of the dash, a foul shot contest, the Greenacres gallop and the famous water balloon toss. See the results of all contests below.
Brownies presented the flag and Greenacres' own Jon Ceske played taps on the trumpet. Then came the famous Greenacres Gallop and overheated participants were cooled with a water spray courtesy of the Scarsdale Fire Department. A visit from Mayor Flisser, County Executive Rob Astorino and Scarsdale Trustee Kay Eisenman, a Greenacres resident herself, topped off a celebratory day.
