SUMMIT, NJ - The City of Summit's 'Fourth of July Celebration' -- which traditionally features a day of activities including a decorated bicycle parade, entertainment, amusement and live music prior to culminating in a fireworks show -- has been canceled due to restrictions issued by the State of New Jersey to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

According to the City, the Summit Department of Community Programs is working with City officials to create a scaled-down event that meets social distancing requirements and restrictions on crowd size. At press time, those plans were not yet available as the City is awaiting additional guidance from the State of New Jersey. 

All City offices including the Municipal Transfer Station will be closed on Friday, July 3 in observance of the July 4 holiday. The Transfer Station will be open on July 4, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Previously announced Transfer Station restrictions and protocols remain in effect.
