Lower Township’s annual Independence Day festival and fireworks display will kick off the Fourth of July holiday on Sunday, July 3, 2016.
“This Independence Day festival and fireworks are a tradition for both residents and visitors to enjoy and celebrate American pride,” said Superintendent of Parks and Recreation Mitchell Plenn, who supervises and manages the event.
The event is an evening full of live music, entertainment, food, free children’s amusement rides and one of the largest fireworks displays in the area.
The festival begins at 5 p.m. along the bay front in North Cape May between Lincoln Boulevard and Emerson Avenue. Amusement rides are traditionally located on Washington Boulevard and Franklin Avenue.
The event will also feature food vendors, games, musical entertainment and fun for the entire family.
As the festival winds down around 8:45 p.m., grab your beach blankets and chairs and head down to the bay to watch the fireworks illuminate the Delaware Bay. The fireworks will start after 9 p.m.
