Independence Day Spectacular in South Amboy

By Beverly Samuelson —

SOUTH AMBOY – Food, Fun, Fireworks was the venue in South Amboy for the 4th of July celebration. Raritan Bay Park was the place to be for a spectacular day of music, great vendors cooking up all kinds of specialties including Corned Beef, Home Made Lemonade, Italian specialties, Hamburgers, Hot Dogs and French Fries. Wells Fargo had their stagecoach on site for all to see. Amboy Bank offered literature on their banking services. Both banks had well informed reps on site to answer questions and meet the crowd. There were many inflatable toys for children to enjoy and great music for all to hear and tap their feet to.

As the night went on and darkness fell the fireworks began. This was a joint effort

between South Amboy and Perth Amboy and the event was fabulous! Kudos to all the organizers of the event. Mayor Fred Henry of South Amboy along with Councilman Mickey Gross both agreed that all the hard work paid off and they were happy to give the residents of both towns a great holiday celebration. Also seen were 2 local candidates running for South Amboy City Council Ken Walczak and Vince Mackiel, both agreed that the event was great and that events such as this should be held for the residents. Both also commended the business owners who contributed to the event to make it possible. It was a great joint community celebration, enjoyed by thousands of people and I hear that planning has already started for next year!
