Organizers estimated that around 8,000 people attended the event.
They came for the food, the fun and the fireworks.
White Plains Mayor Thomas Roach said he's attended the show every year since he's been mayor, and added that he was excited for people to celebrate the holiday early as a community.
"After all we went through with COVID-19, just being with each other again feels really special," Roach said.
