Helpful NJ Fireworks Tips:

It is always wise to check the information on each event yourself before you travel any great distance. Fireworks displays do get cancelled and you should confirm the details if the weather looks iffy. You can easily check the borough, city or township web site or Facebook page before you go. We also get times

Fireworks Displays almost always cause traffic nightmares. My advice is go early, park in a location as far away from the fireworks as possible but as close as possible to a major road. The other tactic is to just use a shuttle bus if any is available. My last suggestion for the traffic issues is to do some meditation the week before you go or to take a legal but effective chill pill.
