Piermont NY Memorial Day Watchfire

Uploaded on Wednesday 16 April 2014


Every Memorial Day Weekend, the riverside town of Piermont New York builds a watch fire to Revolutionary War specifications. Thats 30ft x 30ft x 30ft.

These fires were originally used as signals, showing progress, up the river, when British soldiers had been cleared out of an area.

To this day, every year, the town of Piermont recreates these dramatic and beautiful fires, and it is a great night to see friends and enjoy a great time!

The music is from Star Wars, i thought it was fitting.
