The weather, no matter what it brings, will not deter the annual reading of the Declaration of Independence on the Morristown Green on Independence Day.

The Morris County Tourism Bureau, in conjunction with the Morristown National Historical Park, will host the annual reading at 11 a.m. In the event of heavy rains – which are expected due to Hurricane Arthur’s impact on the coast – the ceremony will be moved inside the Presbyterian Church in Morristown, directly across the street from the Green at 57 East Park Place.

The festivities will include music by the Morris Music Men and Wire Harp, the reading, tolling of the bells and a musket salute.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at 2 p.m. at Fort Nonsense, part of the Morristown National Historical Park, which recently underwent a significant 2014 renovation to improve the overall visitor experience to the former fort and look-out, the Tourism Bureau said in a statement.
