Description: Last year marked the first ever Live on the Lawn Independence Day Celebration at Rutherfurd Hall since opening as a cultural center in 2011. This event was met with remarkable popularity, and the immediate and surrounding communities loved it. Because it is not like other fireworks displays in Warren County! We like to call it the “Kentucky Derby of fireworks.” It is a classy event, with vast lawns in the shadows of the historic mansion and sweeping down to Allamuchy Pond at the edge of Allamuchy Mountain State Park. More like Tanglewood than parking lot Live on the Lawn is an event for you to invite your friends & family, pack a cooler and blankets, and head out for the evening! The fireworks are unique and high end, and the live music, again provided by Uncle Shoehorn and others, will surely get you in the summer spirit. There will be burgers and ice cream as well as water on sale, some activities for the kids, art & history exhibits, and great roaming live entertainment!


Location:  Lake Mohawk County Club
Date: Friday July 4, 2014
Description: The Lake Mohawk Country Club will stage its annual fireworks display on Friday, July 4, 2014 over Lake Mohawk in Sparta. I have been trying to get to their fireworks display for years because I know it will make for stunning photographs. Sparta is one of my favorite places in New Jersey and one of the most beautiful spots in the region. The day begins with a 4th of July parade at 10:00 a.m. sponsored by the Sparta Elks.
