Fourth of July fireworks in Beach Haven
For as long as I remember, Beach Beach Haven has has provided a spectacular fireworks demonstration each year
The fireworks are presented from barges that are anchored in the bay off 9th Street. The exact date of the fireworks depends on when is 4th of July Falls in that particular year. It also can be cancelled for high winds or heavy rain.
The best viewing spot is at the Bay Beach at 9th Street in Beach Haven. However traffic is Thoroughly congested and finding a parking spot is an ultimate challenge. The ends of most streets North to about 21st Street in North Beach Haven provide a decent View. Parking near the bay is extremely difficult at most locations. Arrive early for parking and a decent viewing position. Most people bring a chair.
There are also hundreds of boats anchored in the Bay North and South of of the fireworks. Some of the local party boats such as the Black Pearl will will offer special packages to watch the display and party on board.
Other municipalities on the island also have fireworks displays. They may or may not occur on the same night as the displays at Beach Haven.
When the fireworks are over, there is a massive 2 hour traffic jam on the Boulevard and side streets
One thing to keep in mind is that the state of New Jersey and local municipalities have very has very strict rules and regulations regarding private fireworks use.
