We have no plans for the 4th, but we always attend the United States Independence Day Fireworks at the Montgomery High School. They are often well attended and are funded independently of the township. We’ve been doing it since the kids were in kindergarten (and before I knew how to use a DSLR).
Like every year in the past, there was fun for the family on the front lawn of Montgomery High School in Skillman on July 1st! Starting at 6 pm there were games and vendors including grilled foods ( I had a kielbasa on a stick), drinks (non-alcoholic), and the ever-popular kettle corn (we bought two jumbo bags). We got there early, found a great picnic spot under the stars, enjoyed the sounds of the local band, “Pi Fight”. After walking around, bumping into and chatting with other township residents, friends and family we stood for a heartfelt rendition of the Star Spangled Banner at dusk. Then it was time for a fabulous display of fireworks.
My mom was visiting from the Caribbean and enjoyed hanging out with me and my extended family.
