Helpful NJ Fireworks Tips

Always confirm the time and location of your chosen event. Mistakes are sometimes made and sometimes events are cancelled or delayed. Before traveling a long distance, check on details with the town or the sponsoring organization.

Get there early and park so that you are able to get out easily. Try to park as close as you can to a big thoroughfare. You might have to walk a good distance to the event site, but it might be much easier to wade through heavy traffic.

Leave early if you can. Have everything ready to go when it’s time for the fireworks finale.

Enjoy celebrating America’s independence with one of the many 4th of July activities listed for Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties.
