East Windsor will present fireworks display July 7

Fireworks will fill the air over Etra Lake when East Windsor Township sets off the sparklers at its annual Independence Day celebration.

The Independence Day celebration is set for July 7 beginning at 6 p.m at Etra Lake Park, off Disbrow Hill Road. The rain date is July 14. The event is free.

The celebration features music provided by several musical groups, starting with Jerry Rife’s Rhythm Kings Dixieland Jazz Band at 6 p.m. The six-piece band plays jazz music.

The Trenton Brass Quintet Plus One, another six-piece band, will follow at 7:45 p.m. The band plays Americana music and popular melodies.

The fireworks display will begin right after the musicians wrap up their tunes, at about 9:30 p.m.

“Our nation’s Independence Day is a great occasion for our residents to join together to celebrate and recognize our blessings of liberty and freedom,” Mayor Janice S. Mironov said.

Residents can bring blankets and chairs to sit on and watch the fireworks, and use the barbeque grills in the park, Mironov said.

For those who do not want to use a grill, there will be food available for purchase.
