No matter how many years we’ve watched classic Jersey Shore fireworks, we still get that one-of-a-kind happy feeling when we watch the sky light up from the comfort of our beach chair or picnic blanket. We’ve got a full schedule of fireworks for this holiday weekend, Thursday, June 30th – Monday, July 4th – even a bonus show on Friday, July 8th! Whether you are looking for a full-blown local celebration, or just want to settle in at dusk to watch the show, there’s something for you somewhere nearby!
