For up to the minute information call 908-277-2932 or www.cityofsummit.org

The Summit Fourth of July and Celebration Committee would like to recognize the major sponsors of this year’s events. Without their support, this 65 year old tradition would not occur. Investors Bank, Celgene Corporation, Merck, Overlook Medical Center and support from Equinox Fitness Center !  A very special thank you to the hundreds of local businesses who have also contributed to the event. A very special thanks to all of the residents whose contributions help to fund the children’s day activities. While other communities around the country have discontinued their events, the residents and businesses in Summit would not let this 65 year old tradition fail. It is a tribute to the sense of patriotism and tradition held closely by those who live, work and love Summit, NJ.
