Ridgewood NJ, just to clear up a few misconceptions the Ridgewood Fourth of July Celebration is organized by the Ridgewood Fourth of July Celebration, Inc., an all-volunteer, non-profit community group.
All aspects of this annual celebration including fireworks, bands, evening performers, insurance, police and fire personnel are funded by voluntary contributions from local businesses and individuals.
That is the way it has always been , always not just this year but as long as we can remember and that is the early 1960’s.
So get those chairs ready and support the tradition .
