Holidays have been observed a little differently for most of this year, and the 4th of July will be no different. Fortunately, there are many ways we can still celebrate. Thankfully the state is beginning to reopen but officials remind all of us to continue practicing the necessary precautions.  Do your best to practice physical distancing, continue to wash your hand often, and wear a mask when needed to protect yourself and your family. 

The Atlantic City casinos, according to New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, are set to reopen on July 2nd, some are currently taking reservations to stay in their hotel rooms. Spending the 4th of July in Atlantic City at the beach is always a great option while continuing to practice social distancing. Atlantic City has also legalized open containers and drinking on the boardwalk so you can also grab a drink if you decide to spend your holiday at the beach. 

Many parades and firework shows in the area have been postponed until August or canceled completely.  Here are a few area fireworks displays. Check out our South Jersey Fireworks Guide for a full list to see what events are still happening near you this year.
