Anyone know if there are food vendors or if we should bring our own picnic?

I don't recall there being food vendors. Most everyone just brings a picnic and sits out on the grass.

Are there going to any fireworks on July 4th???

I'll be visiting family in Priceton on July 4. Will there be any fireworks then?

Brian, I don't think there will be fireworks in the immediate area on the 4th. It's much more expensive to have them on that day. You'll have to go to New York (and maybe Philly). Tip: You can go to Hoboken or Weehawken to view NY's display from the Jersey side.

Are the fireworks rain or shine?
Greta Cuyler (Editor) July 03, 2013 at 06:00 PM
AK, yes, they're rain or shine, although please note that this article is from one year ago. This year, 2013, the fireworks are being held on Wednesday, July 3. The only thing that cancels them is lightning.
