An official statement has been issued by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey regarding the Fourth of July celebrations. At the same time the Statue of Liberty is also set to be hoisted into the Brooklyn Bridge. Both events will take place at 11 am on that day. The statement by the port authority does not mention whether the Fourth of July celebrations will be covered under the Statue of Liberty or not. The Port Authority was contacted and given the details and a statement has now been issued.
“With the July Fourth weekend quickly approaching, we are pleased to offer visitors special commemorative discounts on selected hotel packages for the celebration. The New Jersey Trips and Advance Passes are available online or at the Department of State’s website. Travelers may purchase their Trips and Advance Passes online at no charge. Advance Passes will allow unlimited travel within the State of New Jersey for one full year.”
Another interesting point made is that fireworks are forbidden in the park. No pyrotechnics or pyrotechnic devices of any sort may be discharged, propel, or display any type of fireworks, including mortar shells or fireworks in any public park, on any evening or day excepting those days fixed in advance as designated Fireworks Celebration dates. These designated days are printed on fireworks displays that can be seen across the state. So if you want to celebrate, you simply need to know when and where the fireworks show is to take place. But it is important to note that the NJ parks department does not grant permission to light any fireworks. They strictly forbid it.
Isfareway is the place for honking your horns, blowing kisses and giving out candy and souvenirs. This is the place for parades and joyous crowds of cars, trucks, bikes and joggers. It is also a good place for sporting events, bike rallies, road races, beach festivals, concerts and fireworks. What could be more fun than visiting Isfareway at night, enjoying the nightlife, and going on a cruise in the NJ water? Or if you are staying in the Meadowlands area or Breezy Point, there will surely be something enjoyable to do.
You can also enjoy the fireworks in your own backyard. The NJ Fireworks Spectators Bureau offers a variety of fireworks displays that are available through their online site. One such spectacular display is the NJ Fireworks Spectator Show at 11th Avenue Beach in Bay Shore, New Jersey. The entire evening will include music, fireworks, and other activities such as kayaking and canoeing. You can bring your family with you or hire a sitter. The only required attire is a camera, of course.
So, this year when you celebrate Independence Day, why not take advantage of the Isfareway open for fireworks. You can go early so you can be among the first guests to enjoy the show. And since you are among the first guests, you might get the best fireworks show ever! Don’t forget to capture these special moments in photos to share with your friends and loved ones!
