NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - Celebrate the Fourth Of July again, tonight, Thursday, July 5, beginning at 7 p.m. Torrential rain on Wednesday, July 3, caused the borough to cancel the festivities planned for that evening and reschedule them for Thursday. The festivities on South Street begin at 7 p.m. and fireworks will begin at approximately 9:30 p.m. 

The event includes entertainment by DJ Souren of Club Souren on South Street. There will be “Chalk on South” (kids of all ages can get a free “bucket” of chalk to create art and messages on the street) and lots of fun for the whole family. Bring your lawn chairs and blankets.
