July Fourth Weekend in Mendham Township
School is out for the Summer, and July 4th is right around the corner! Mendham Township has a long tradition of celebrating our country’s Independence Day in style, and this year’s celebrations are shaping up to be great yet again!
The Township will kick off July 4th Weekend with the Township’s 2nd Annual Public Fireworks Show at Mosle Field on Friday, July 2nd.
Like last year, the fireworks display is free to the public and being funded through private contributions. If you or your business would like to sponsor this celebratory event, a donation can be made directly through the Recreation Department’s Community Pass platform.
The Fireworks event will take place from 6:30pm - 10:00pm and a band will be playing music for the duration of the event. There will be giveaways, food trucks, and arts and crafts for the kids. The gates will open at 6:30pm - please arrive early to guarantee a parking spot! There will be handicap parking spaces and transportation from the parking lot to the field available for those who require assistance. After sunset, the fireworks will be set-off from behind the baseball diamond and all attendees will be seated on the football field. Feel free to bring lawn chairs and blankets. The Township Committee will permit alcohol at this event, so feel free to BYOB and please consume responsibly. If you have any questions about this event or if your organization would like to set up a table, please email our Recreation Director David Guida at firstname.lastname@example.org.
