Jul 01, 2015 09:36AM, Published by Community News Service, Categories: Today, Community, Arts+Entertainment



The Bordentown Township tradition of a week full of Independence Day festivities is set to continue once again. The week of July 4 is set to feature a number of events that are open to the public.

On July 1, the 63rd Army National Guard Band is set to perform at Bordentown Regional High School at 7 p.m. The high school is located on Ward Avenue. The concert is free but a ticket is required.

On July 3, the fireworks are set to be held at Joseph Lawrence Park. The event will host a local food court, free kids corner, music and more. The park will be open from 4 p.m. that day with the fireworks beginning at dusk.

The annual July 4 Fish Derby is set to be held at Northern Community Park, with registration beginning at 9 a.m. The State of New Jersey Fish and Wildlife Division will be in attendance at 9:30 to give a presentation and to guide the children in stocking the pond with fish that day. The derby will begin at 10 and continue to noon. There will be door prizes pulled at the conclusion of the derby. Trophies will also be presented at noon to those who have caught the largest fish at the derby.

Bordentown Township is also set to host its summer Arts in the Park Program, which includes both Music in the Park and Movies in the Park. Bordentown Township won the $2,000 application grant that was presented by Sustainable Jersey in March. The grant is set to enable the township to host those free events at Joseph Lawrence Park, located on Ward Avenue, from 7-9 p.m.

The following is a list of events slated for the summer: July 9, Kindred Spirit; July 16, Big Soul Chicken; July 23, movie night “Over the Hedge”; July 30, Latin Night; Aug. 6, Crossing Yardley & Blind Lemon Pie; Aug. 13, Boheme Opera of New Jersey; and Aug. 20, Avatar.
An additional movie night is planned for the senior citizens in October.
