Fireworks All Around Iselin

The Fourth of July is a spectacular holiday - and this year, I'm going to really celebrate.  But I definitely want to make my plans I did a little research. I love fireworks.

Well, to be clear, I love professional firework displays, put on by the experts.  I DON'T love it when my teenagers want to shoot off firecrackers.  I worry too much.  I've heard of plenty of people getting injured from shooting off their own firecrackers.  I'm also pretty certain it's illegal to "manufacture, store, sell, transport, use, dispose of, or possess explosives in any manner."  (And yes, firecrackers are explosives.)

And yet - I've been getting junk mail from places that sell fireworks over in Pennsylvania - they sell them, but I don't think it's legal to shoot them off in that state either! 

So anyway - here are some places that you can go to see Fireworks, have a great time, and be safe.  Make your plans early, and have fun!
