Watch Fireworks Wed. @ River Barge Park


River Barge Park in Carlstadt will be open Wednesday evening (July 2) for all Bergen, Passaic and Hudson County residents who’d like to see the Secaucus Fireworks Display.

Bring your own lawn chairs and (just in case) bug spray.

The fireworks start at 9 p.m. or so. The park’s rowing dock will be open if you’d like to sit down by the river (the marina will be closed).

Directions to River Barge Park are on the right-hand column of this blog.

The park will stay open until a half-hour after the last firework goes off. All this is dependent on the weather, so keep your fingers crossed.
