MILLTOWN, NJ - The annual Fourth of July festivities began early with fishing enthusiasts hitting Mill Pond. Then, the attention turned to the runners as the Firecracker 5K and one-mile Fun Run hit the streets. Runners may have noticed many of the Milltown homes all decked out in red, white and blue along the race route and as they arrived in town or walked to the starting line on Violet Terrace on July 4. However, when the final winner for the Most Patriotic Home was unveiled, it was Stacy Sullivan who came out on top.

Sullivan's home on Benhardt Road was tastefully decorated in America's traditional colors that featured both flags, banners and stars. The red, white and blue motif perfectly complemented the well-manicured home and front yard.

Joyce Crabiel took home the title of Best Apple Pie at this year's Fourth of July fun. Both ladies' names were announced at 2:30 p.m in Gloria Bradford Park just after High in the Mid 80s concluded their upbeat set.

To be in the running for Most Patriotic Home, residents had to submit an application by June 27. Photographs were taken of all the entrants on July 2 and the final winner was chosen by fellow residents who cast their votes.
