Hamilton Celebrates Independence Day with
Concert and Fireworks Tonight (Friday)
(Hamilton) – While many area communities were forced to cancel their annual Fourth of July fireworks celebrations this year due to reductions in state revenue, Hamilton Township will continue its traditional Independence Day Fireworks and Concert Celebration tonight (Friday, July 2nd) Veterans Park (inside the Park’s Kuser Road Entrance) thanks to Hamilton Township Mayor John Bencivengo’s Recreation and Community Event sponsorship initiative, which raised private dollars to fund the cost of the celebration.
Beginning at 7:00 P.M., the 78th Army Band of the US Army Reserve will perform and provide attendees with musical entertainment. Food vendors will also be during the concert performance.
In additional, the Hamilton Township Patriotic Committee, who was instrumental in bringing the recently dedicated F4-E Phantom II Jet to Veterans Park, will be collecting worn or damaged American Flags tonight, to ensure that the flags will be properly disposed. Throughout the year, the Patriotic Committee helps to organize ceremonies that properly and respectfully dispose of American Flags that are no longer in appropriate condition to be flown.
Following the free concert, at approximately 9:00 P.M., residents will be able to enjoy a spectacular fireworks extravaganza. The fireworks will be accompanied by patriotic music that will keep everyone in the Fourth of July spirit.
