On Saturday, June 29, with a rain date June 30th, the Township of Scotch Plains will host its annual Independence Day Fireworks at the Scotch Hills Golf Course.
This year’s celebration will feature a performance by The Scotch Plainsmen, a talented group of musicians who have performed as the backup band for our own Pat DiNizio of the Smithereens during his solo performances.
The fireworks will go off at dusk and organizers note no heels will be allowed on the golf course but blankets and chairs are encouraged. The Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA will host a “Red, Y, and Blue” station with activities for kids from 7:30 to 9 p.m. and food vendors will be on site throughout the evening. Alcoholic beverages are not permitted on the premises.
