July 4 Fireworks Are Tonight
Celebrate the holiday with fireworks at Verona, Cedar Grove High Schools.
Get your beach chairs, blankets, and maybe some earplugs ready, because July 4th fireworks are coming to Verona and Cedar Grove.
The sky will light up with a colorful display, commemorating our nation's independence, dazzling spectators and probably frightening a few pets, too.
Cedar Grove fireworks will begin at dusk on tonight. In the event of rain, the fireworks will be rescheduled for dusk tomorrow.
“All locations at the high school are excellent,” said Cedar Grove Township Manager Tom Tucci. “If you can get there early, you can get a closer spot and be sure to bring your own beach chair.”
Verona's fireworks will also be held on tonight at the Verona High School field. DJ entertainment begins at 7 p.m. with fireworks being set off at dusk. In the event of rain, fireworks will be rescheduled for the same time tomorrow.
Verona's summer concert series also kicks off on Wednesday at the town pool. Performances by the Verona-based band, Alotta Colada, will begin at 7 p.m.
“The sounds of the summer and the Islands come alive with this entertaining band. They are comprised of an all-star lineup of seasoned musicians of Verona residents. The music is timeless and the party never stops,” according to a news release.
The Fourth of July concert is sponsored by McEnerney, Brady & Company, LLC.
