Jersey Shore Fourth of July Fireworks Guide
Wednesday might be the worst day for Independence Day to fall on. Monday or Friday are good because we get a three-day-weekend, Tuesday and Thursday are okay because (if we have the vacation time saved up) we can stretch it into four days...but Wednesday is just a drag.
Some towns are celebrating early so that we can enjoy the fireworks displays without staying up on a weeknight.
