Camden New Year’s Eve celebration (Photos)

In the Philadelphia region, the biggest fireworks display is over the Delaware River. This year’s fireworks were sponsored by the SugarHouse Casino and included an early 6 p.m. fireworks show and the traditional midnight celebration. 

The best views of the fireworks are on the Camden side of the Delaware River because the Philadelphia skyline provides an impressive backdrop for the fireworks. But it also works out nice for families that the Adventure Aquarium hosts a family-friendly celebration inside till 8:30 p.m. 

This year, we sent photographer Bas Slabber to cover the early celebration in Camden. Enjoy our photos and Happy New Year from all of us at NewsWorks.
