JERSEY CITY, NJ - This year, the City of Jersey City will be hosting an impressive 4th of July weekend celebration. While the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks display will be the main act, a couple of “first-time” events will add to the fun and festivities.

On July 2nd & 3rd, the 13th Annual Cycle Messengers World Championship (CMWC) will be held for the first time in Jersey City. The CMWC, a world-class sporting event attracting bike messengers from around the globe, is organized by the New York Bike Messenger Foundation. Aside from the main race, other events that will be held in Jersey City over the two days include the cargo race, sprints, the bunny hop, and track events. Other parts of the competition are also being held in New York City and Brooklyn.

Another event making its debut in Jersey City is the first annual Jersey City FreedomFest, a musical celebration of American jazz, rock & blues, which will be staged in the Green Park, a section of Liberty State Park. The event is being produced by the Liberty Event Management, and features Jason Lindner, offering jazz tunes, as the opening act and John Eddie, playing “Jersey shore” rock, as the headliner.

The highlight of the evening is Macy’s 29th Annual 4th of July Fireworks, which blasts off at 9:20 pm. The half-hour long Fireworks spectacular will explode over 30,000 shells fired from a total of 7 barge configurations in three locations. The barge in Jersey City is centered between Liberty and Ellis islands. The fireworks extravaganza will have the Manhattan skyline, the Hudson River, and the Statue of Liberty serving as spectacular backdrops

Thousands of people are expected to take part in the festivities. The City urges the public to proceed early to Liberty State Park to enjoy the concert and fireworks display.

Press interested in covering the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks need a press permit from Liberty State Park. The Mayor’s press office can offer assistance.
