What's Going on for the Fourth of July?
Patriotic events in and around Morristown.
There might not be a fireworks display in Morristown for the Fourth of July, but there is still plenty of patriotism on tap. But, if it's fireworks you're after, you won't have to go too far, either.
At 10 a.m., longtime Morristown resident and friend to veterans, J. Robert Tracey, will have Veterans Park in Morristown dedicated in his honor. Tracey, as well as Morristown Mayor Tim Dougherty and Morris Township Mayor Peter Mancuso are scheduled to speak.
Starting at noon, Morristown National Historical Park will conduct its regular annual Fourth of July festivities, including the reading of the Declaration of Independence at 1 p.m. There is no admission fee for this event.
