July 4th is here and there is nowhere better to spend it than right here in New Jersey. If you’re looking for incredible fireworks, there’s plenty of option. Whether you want to spend it on the beach, at a state fair, or by the Manhattan skyline, you’ll find the perfect show for you.
Here are four of the best NJ 4th of July fireworks shows:
Catch a World-Famous Show in Hoboken
For over five years, Macy’s has sponsored an amazing fireworks display from New York, right on the beautiful Hudson River. To catch some of the best views of the show, however, you don’t need to be in New York – you can watch them right in New Jersey.
Park yourself alongside the river in Hoboken, usually in Maxwell Park, and you’ll have a perfect view of the Manhattan skyline, and of the show. You’ll be able to experience these world-famous fireworks without having to fight the world-famous New York City traffic!
Take in Two Fireworks Displays in Wildwood
In Wildwood, the 4th of July celebration is much more than a single fireworks display. It lasts three days and actually has two separate shows. The weekend starts on Friday, with a craft show on the boardwalk and a collectible event in the Convention Center. Later that evening, there’s an amazing fireworks display right on the beach.
On Saturday evening, the true extravaganza begins. Around 10 pm, a much larger display begins on the beach near Morey’s Piers. If you’re lucky enough, you can catch the lights and sounds from the top of a Ferris wheel!
Watch a Spectacular Event at the NJ State Fair
Every year, the State Fair in the Meadowlands opens up for several weeks, culminating with an incredible fireworks display on Independence Day. It features the largest Kiddieland in the state, as well as plenty of thrilling rides for teenagers and adults. Petting zoos, delicious foods, and lots of unique shopping make it the perfect destination for a holiday afternoon.
Once evening hits, the show begins. The sky lights up with radiant colors and incredible shapes, the perfect nightcap to a fun day for the whole family.
Family-Friend Festival on the Camden Waterfront
If you’re looking for family fun a bit further south, the Camden Waterfront Freedom Festival is perfect for you. For children, there’s playhouses, entertainment, face painting, and lots of food. For adults, there’s a full-blown Beer Garden, complete with representatives from local breweries and vineyards.
At 9:30 pm, the fireworks show begins. Set right over the Delaware River, viewers will be treated to an incredible show with the Philadelphia skyline in the background.
