July 4th Fireworks 2008

7/2/2008:

There was news that the Hudson River might be part of the Macy*s annual fireworks show this year, but we got burned.

Like I’ve mentioned before, it’s certainly a super-sized show, but I find it a bit overwhelming. I still prefer the smaller shows, such as our own Hoboken Italian Festival (later in the summer). You’re closer to the action, so it’s much louder.

For those that love the explosive missiles, here’s some local area action this week. Common sense indicates that these shows will start after dark, so no times are listed.

Thursday July 3rd

  • The Meadowlands Fair started last week, and I heard the fireworks there are supposed to be really good, too. Tomorrow and Friday are the fireworks.
  • For fireworks and even MORE fun, take a 2-hour drive down to The Borgata in Atlantic City. Great show launched off the roof! Check out the new Water Club luxury hotel while you’re there!
  • You can take a quick drive to Secaucus at Mill Ridge ball field.
  • Or if you’re really feeling fruity, head down to Bayonne and get your fix down there.

Friday July 4th

You could always stay in Hoboken, and watch the various (and illegal) “amateur” fireworks display (sponsored by City Hall, who proudly advertises Pennsylvania Fireworks in the lobby).

Males don’t pee? I guess I should make a doctor’s appointment.
