Helpful NJ Fireworks Tips

  • Always confirm the time and location of your chosen event. We sometimes make mistakes and sometimes displays are cancelled or delayed. Before you travel a long distance, check the details on the with the town or the sponsoring organization.
  • Get there early and park so that you can get out easily. We always try to park as close as we can to a big thoroughfare. This might mean that you will have to walk a good distance to the event site.
  • Leave early if you can. Have everything ready to go when you get to the finale.
