You don’t want to miss these New Jersey fireworks shows this July 4th holiday. These towns in New Jersey will light up the night sky for Independence Day.

After a day of grilling and drinking some choice beverages, there’s nothing like relaxing under a brightly-colored night sky. Don’t you love that we choose to celebrate our country with tiny colorful explosions? It’s so great to watch kids run around your grassy firework-watching space with their glowsticks and popsicles from the ice cream truck. Just add some live music and possibly yet ANOTHER choice beverage and you’re set.

Don’t miss out on this quintessential summer experience. There are so many places in New Jersey that are setting off fireworks for the 4th of July. Most fireworks shows are completely free events and can be watched from anywhere. It’s a fun activity for the whole family that makes for some good photos and even better memories.

Celebrate the holiday on a variety of dates with these simply spectacular shows. You’re going to want to grab your blankets or chairs, pick a great spot, sit back, and relax. There’s nothing like a night under the stars…and “the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air.”
