2016 FIREWORKS SPECTACULAR THURSDAY, JUNE 30th – Don’t Miss It! 

The weather looks fine for lots of fun for the whole family on the front lawn of Montgomery High School Thursday night at Montgomery’s annual Independence Day Celebration!

Starting at 6 pm there will be games, entertainment, and vendors including grilled foods, drinks, and the ever-popular kettle corn and funnel cakes. Get there early to get a great picnic spot under the stars!

Bring a blanket or chairs and enjoy the sounds of a popular music band, “Just Duet – with Friends” playing at 7:00 pm on the mobile stage. There will also be a warm-up band this year at 6:00 pm – “Perfectly Sharp” – a seasoned jazz quintet from Montgomery High School’s own jazz band. After the playing of the Star Spangled Banner at dusk (approx. 9:15 pm), get ready for a spectacular display of patriotic fireworks, sure to bring out the kid in everyone. This year’s grand finale is rumored to be especially grand!

This free event is funded in part by contributions from individuals, corporations, and small businesses, plus fees from our vendors, making this a true community event.

Mayor Patricia Graham, Deputy Mayor Ed Trzaska and the entire Township Committee invite and encourage the Montgomery community to come together, honor the nation, and enjoy a night out with our families and friends.
