Fundraising Continues; VIP Parking Available
The 2013 Montgomery Independence Day Celebration and Fireworks will go off on Thursday, June 27th (rain date: Thursday, July 11th). Activities start at 6:00PM and continue to dusk. It should once again be a fantastic way to usher in the summer. This event is completely funded by contributions from corporations, small business leaders, individual citizens, and fees from high quality vendors and non – profit organizations. Our website, www.montgomeryfireworks.org is up and running and accepting donations.
Mayor Ed Trzaska commented, “As always, this is a wonderful opportunity for the community to come together, honor the nation, and enjoy a night out with our families and friends. Please mark your calendars.”
Two years ago was the first year that the event was privately funded. With individual business and citizen contributions, for the past two years the Fireworks Committee has been able to stage a true 4th of July extravaganza enjoyed by over 6,000 and 8,000 attendees, respectively. This model worked well thanks to the generosity of the public and all the hard work of the fireworks committee, the Montgomery Police, Montgomery fire companies, EMS and public works. Contributions are still needed annually and very much appreciated.
One new feature of the event that has proven very popular is pre-sold reserved parking spots that provide guaranteed onsite parking. PLEASE remember to get your parking pass online if you wish to park onsite. Last year, they sold out before the night of the event. Go to https://register.communitypass.net and select Montgomery, NJ from the drop down arrow.
For 2013, the Committee has planned a bigger and better event. The crowd will be entertained by the feel-good sounds of the band “Rock and Soul”. There will be a wide variety of food and beverages to choose from and lots of fun activities for the children.
“Most of all, the spectacular fireworks will be the star of the show! My thanks to the planning committee, which has been hard at work since January to ensure that all the countless details for a flawless event are in place,” said Fireworks Committee Chairman George Jarvis.
Please look for more information at our new website, www.montgomeryfireworks.org
which explains how to donate to the event as an individual or sponsor and how to purchase parking spots. Questions may be emailed to email@example.com .
The Montgomery Township Fireworks Committee members are Frank Drift, Kacey Dyer, Matt Galvin, Meg Helms, Cynthia Weshnak, Karen Zimmerman, Donna Castronovo and Chair George Jarvis. They wish to thank all the event supporters, who continue to make the annual Montgomery Fireworks possible. So mark your calendar for June 27th to have a blast!
