Looking for a wonderfully patriotic way to celebrate your Independence Day? Look no further! Near your Millburn-Short Hills home, the festivities are fast approaching, and promise a holiday weekend worthy of celebrating our great nation’s birthday. Come join in the fun of living in Short Hills and Millburn with a weekend full of family, friends, and fun!
You can start your July Fourth bright and early with a touching flag raising ceremony Taylor Park at 9 a.m. It will be followed by the presentation of the Patriot Award presentation, where Millburn-Short Hills Girl Scouts will receive honors for their years of patriotism and service to our ever-grateful community of Millburn-Short Hills.
At 9:30, suit up your bikes and prepare for the infamous trike/bike/stroller parade and the girls’ All Star softball game at 10 a.m. To keep the celebration family-fun and hopping, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Taylor Park, will be transformed into a patriotic festival for the whole family featuring children’s rides, games, ponies, and a Revolutionary War encampment reenacted by the Morgan Rifles in a show that captures the true spirit of living in Short Hills!
7 p.m. is when the party moves closer to Millburn homes, at Millburn High School where you’ll be met with patriotic music performed by Krazy Kat and an expanded schedule of Family Field Games. As a finale, for everyone’s favorite end to their Independence Day (except for maybe your pets)… there will be plenty of FIREWORKS cascading above your Millburn-Short Hills home!
Tickets to this patriotic community event can be purchased before July Fourth at a reduced price of $10, or $12 the day of the festivities. Tickets for the fireworks are separate and cost $5. You can find your tickets at a number of local merchants, including Millburn Deli, Futter’s Shoes, and Anthony Laurence Jewelers, which are all near your Millburn home. They can also be purchased at the town haIl or at the gate. In the event of a rain check, the celebration will take place on July 5th.
Join Millburn-Short Hills this July Fourth to celebrate your liberty and Independence and have a Happy Independence Day wherever you are. I am grateful everyday for the freedoms that allow me and you to have a home in Short Hills and Millburn and live in the U.S.A!
