  • Dawson and Marcia Kershaw walked the track in their festive attire and took in the sights and sounds before the fireworks started.

  • Although most of the sky was a muted gray, some clouds just could not contain themselves and sported the most lovely pink colors.

  • The band Tequila Rose entertained the crowd, with many people getting up and dancing.

  • Kids played soccer and other games on McCormack Field while waiting for the fireworks.

  • Photo by Patricia Keller The field got very crowded as the sun went down and the fireworks show was imminent.

  • Councilwomen Marilyn Lichtenberg, decked out in the stars and stripes, and Ada Erik manned the Community Against Substance Abuse table for part of the evening.

Instead of celebrating July 4 a few days early, thanks to the threat of thunder storms, the township celebrated the nation's independence on July 6. It was worth the wait.

This community event was well attended, with concessions for adults and kids, great music from Tequila Rose, and the true star of the night, spectacular fireworks.
