July 4th Fireworks Displays

New Jerseyans can find a list of 118 fireworks displays that are scheduled to occur this weekend at, which offers details of the celebrations as well as maps.

There will be fireworks displays in more than one out of five municipalities, beginning tonight in Belleville, Secaucus, Denville, and Woodbridge (which happens not to be listed on the site).

Possession and purchase of fireworks are illegal in New Jersey, so most large celebrations are hosted by municipalities or counties, which can obtain a special license for an event. However, the largest fireworks display can be watched from New Jersey again this year, as the annual Macy’s fireworks will be launched over the Hudson River. The best viewings, according to Macy’s, will be from Hoboken and Weekhawken.
