Middle Township Mayor 4th of July Fireworks “Will Be Held”

On Friday June 5th, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy extended the public health emergency order for another 30 days. This would push covid-19 restrictions in the state until July 5th, the day after the national holiday.

Under the New Jersey Executive Order 142 things such as concerts and fireworks are not to take place unless otherwise authorized.

With Memorial Day, one of three weekends that local businesses thrive on, shut down most businesses need July 4th crowds to make up the lost revenue. 

On Sunday, Middle Township Mayor, Tim Donohue, posted on Facebook that they have decided to reverse their decision to cancel the 4th of July fireworks.

The post goes on to say;

“After consulting with my colleagues on Township Committee, we have REVERSED our decision to cancel the fireworks.A celebration of our Independence WILL be held at dusk on Saturday, July 4th 2020.

The event will be fireworks only. Gates will open one hour before start time.We will be following the same social distancing rules now in place for our beaches.”

There is no word on when the Wildwoods and it’s surrounding towns will bring back fireworks though Cape May Country has some the lowest amount of cases of COVD-19 in the state of New Jersey.

Tune back later for more info.
