KENILWORTH, NJ - Kenilworth held its annual fireworks display at David Brearley High School last Sunday. In addition to the fireworks display, the Kenilworth Recreation Department organized festivities at Harding Elementary School leading up to the display.

The evening began with a parade that started at St. Theresa’s School. The parade traveled down Washington Avenue, and upon its completion, the festivities began.

At Harding, various vendors set up stalls which boasted various foods, desserts, and much more. There were also several inflatable rides set up to provide fun before the fireworks display occurred.
