The fireworks this year will be held on Thursday, July 3rd, at the Roselle Park High School fields. This will kick off the Independence Day weekend for residents and visitors as the 4th of July falls on a Friday this year.
“That gives everybody a real nice long holiday weekend if they were planning on going away,” said Karen Intile, the Casano Community Center director who organizes the annual fireworks show, “They can come see our fireworks on Thursday night.”
In 2013, the fireworks were held on Saturday July 6th and although some residents felt the Independence Day tradition should have been held on July 4th, the fireworks were a huge success with many in attendance calling it one of the best shows ever.
The decision for the date was made at the February 25th Municipal Budget Workshop. The fireworks will be paid through donations and will not come out of the municipal budget.
