Looking for a place to enjoy fireworks in South Jersey?

NewsWorks has a listed of events for the following counties: Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, Mercer, Ocean and Salem.

There will be no fireworks displays hosted by New Jersey’s Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst. This year’s sequestration that led to federal cuts across the board putting the event on the chopping block.

Despite tight budgets on the state and local level most New Jersey towns that traditionally hold fireworks are planning to hold them.
