LONG BEACH TOWNSHIP, NJ — With many towns canceling their Fourth of July fireworks due to COVID-19 crowd concerns, Long Beach Township has decided to present them with social distancing in mind.

The firework celebration will take place at 68th Street in Brant Beach on the bay, but Bayview Park and the Long Beach Township parking lots will be closed. 

The fireworks to celebrate America's 244th Birthday will begin at dusk around 9:15 p.m. You can only watch from rooftop decks, boats or a street end while social distancing.

Fireworks are sponsored by Fantasy Island Amusement Park.
