There’s one town in central New Jersey that celebrates in a very patriotic way on the actual day of 4 th of July, Milltown, NJ.
Many events take place starting at 6:00 in the morning is the fishing derby. A one mile Fun run at 7:45 am, $12 entry fee. Firecracker 5 K run is at 08:10 am w/ $30.00 entry fee. Early bird pricing has ended.
The annual parade starts at 10:00 am. This years theme is celebrating the 125 Anniversary of the Raritan Railroad. Afterwards, the local town park is open from 11:00 am to 2:30 pm with Water bouncy slide, food vendors, musicians in the gazebo. Hotdogs and select soda for everyone. Bring a lawn chair to sit and enjoy the festivities.
Fireworks take place between 9:00 and 9:30 pm the same evening.
I’ll highlight with the photos of the annual 4 th of July parade, and the festivities afterward.
