Sunday afternoon change:

The Independence Day Fireworks

Hillsborough-area residents have at least two chances to celebrate Independence Day this weekend - July 3rd at Auten Road Intermediate School and July 4th at North Branch Park.

Hillsborough's fireworks display is on July 3rd starting at about 9 p.m. Previous information stated that this is a fireworks display only. According to our e-news...

"...The Township will host an Independence Day Fireworks program on the evening of Sunday, July 3rd.

This year's celebration, which is being funded by Assemblyman Pete Biondi and TD Bank, will be held at the Auten Road Intermediate School field. Shuttle buses will be available, beginning at 8p.m., from both the Hillsborough Middle School and High School. The rain date is Friday, July 8th. ..."

For those looking for more than fireworks, on July 4th starting at 5 p.m., the Somerset County Park Commission presents its Fourth of July Family Festival at North Branch Park (the 4H Fairgrounds) in Bridgewater...
"...Fourth of July Family Festival featuring
North Branch Park 5pm - 11pm

Verdict kicks off Independence Day at North Branch Park, turning the park into a tropical vacation paradise with their rich blend of classic reggae, calypso, soca, and funk island music. Then headliners, Total Soul, an 11 piece band perform R&B, soul, and Motown hits from the 60’s through today, brought to life with a mix of four-part vocal harmony, a soul-driven rhythm section, and “hot” horns. As they boast…”there’s Nowhere to Run if you give Total Soul the opportunity to Stomp into your Brickhouse and turn the park into a Boogie Wonderland. Other highlights of the day include children’s entertainment and activities, historical re-enactments, and fireworks..."

The Park Commission celebration is part of the 2011 Concert Series. For more information on the summer concerts, go here.
