ALLAMUCHY TOWNSHIP, N.J (Warren County) – Families and friends packed the lawn at Rutherfurd Hall on Sunday evening for its annual Fourth of July Celebration. The event was postponed from Saturday due to the threat of thunderstorms.
People started arriving in the afternoon and set up their tables, tents and food, to spend the evening with their loved ones.
Food vendors offered a wide variety of choices such as chicken fingers, ice cream, pretzels and popcorn.
Children lined up to get their face painted and balloons from Pinky the balloon artist.
There was live music from the bands Uncle Shoehorn, Never Too Late and Juke Box Riot.
Then at 9:30 p.m., the first of many fireworks streaked skyward and a collective awe could be heard emanating from those who watched. As the show progressed, excited children screamed as fireworks of many shapes and colors filled the sky. At the very end, applause could be heard from all who attended.
The 12 minute display contained 500-600 fireworks.
