New Jersey Fireworks!

There’s something magical about seeing the sky light to celebrate the 4th of July. But where to go to catch the best overhead display can be tricky… unless you’re near Long Branch, New Jersey where Oceanfest is the place to be.

It takes place form 10 am till 10 pm and has everything from spectacular fireworks to sandsculpting to children’s entertainment.
