Updated on July 9, 2013. Today we’re packing away our Fireworks guide for this year. We’ll be back next year with more of the great coverage you’ve come to expect of us.
We travel to fireworks displays all over the state and we’ve included some of our favorite photographs from our travels. We hope you enjoy them. If you have any that you’d like to share, let us know and we’ll post yours too.
We leave you with some of our favorite displays and some that continue through the summer.

Millville & the Cumberland County Fair & Fireworks: No 2013 Fireworks
The Cumberland County Fair is a great regional event with 4H Displays, classic cars, hay rides, carnival rides, live music and entertainment and pig races. They are not staging firworks this year because they are doing other events in the field where they staged the fireworks. I think that is the field they are doing the mud bog event in.

Thursday, July 4, 2013: Woodstown and Pilesgrove Township New Jersey celebrate the fourth with a “Firecracker 5K Run” at Marlton Park and a down-home small town parade down Main Street. The community is proud to announce the return of their fireworks display for the second year in a row.
