Celebrate the 4th of July as 105.7 The Hawk launches 'American Pride Weekend'. Every hour, we'll be featuring a four play from a great American Classic Rock artist.  You'll hear tracks from Van Halen, Tom Petty, The Eagles, Aerosmith, Lynyrd Skynyrd, of course, Bruce Springsteen and many more.  As you fire up your barbecues, parties, and fireworks, let us be the soundtrack to your Jersey Shore 4th of July weekend.

    Fireworks

    Nothing says "America" like explosions. This 4th of July, it's a smorgasbord of fireworks displays. From Sandy Hook to Long Beach Island, it'll be hard to miss a show this year. Remember, the 4th falls on a Wednesday this year, and a lot of towns are opting to have their fireworks on alternate dates.
