2017 Fireworks – June 29

Posted on May 17, 2017

There will be lots of fun for the whole family on the front lawn of Montgomery High School on Thursday, June 29th!  Starting at 6 pm, there will be plenty of games and activities for children, food vendors selling everything from hotdogs, hamburgers, grilled chicken and pizza to delicious deserts like cheesecake, ice cream and the ever-popular kettle corn and funnel cakes. Get there early to get a great picnic spot under the stars!  Feel free to bring a blanket or chairs and enjoy the sounds of ‘The John Oakes Band’ playing hits from today and yesterday at 7:00 pm up on the stage. After the singing of the Star Spangled Banner at dusk (approx. 9:15 pm), get ready for a spectacular display of patriotic fireworks, sure to bring out the kid in everyone!

This event is funded by contributions from corporations, small business leaders, individual citizens, and fees from high quality vendors and non – profit organizations.  The event rain date is set for Thursday, July 6th.

The event will be held at Montgomery High School, 1014 Rt. 601, Skillman.
