No Memorial Day Parade in Hamilton Township This Year, 4th of July Festivities Are On
There won't be a Memorial Day Parade in Hamilton Township (Mercer County) this year (2021), according to Hamilton Township Mayor Jeff Martin.
I expected this news, since the holiday weekend is upon us, and there was no talk of it. This is the 2nd year in a row that one of the area's largest Memorial Day Parades won't be happening, due to lingering COVID-19 concerns.
The Mayor told me, "The parade committee had to cancel this year again, but, we are moving forward with our 4th of July concert and fireworks this year."
Oh, I'm excited about this year's 4th of July celebration in Hamilton...here are the details:
Save the date. There will be a concert and fireworks held on Friday, July 2nd, with a rain date of Saturday, July 3rd, at Veterans Park. If you're planning on attending, use the Kuser Road entrance to the park.
Come early for some pre-fireworks fun. The concert, with The Heartbeats headlining, will begin at 6pm, so make sure to bring a blanket or chairs, and relax. You'll be able to buy food and drinks from food vendors on site. The fireworks show will start right after dark, around 9:30pm. Ooooh, ahhhhh. I love fireworks.
If you're looking for a local Memorial Day Parade, they are still happening in Lawrence Township on Saturday, May 29th at 10am, and Hopewell Township on Sunday, May 30th at 1pm.
