Snoop Dogg, one of rap’s most well-known figures known for hits like “Drop It Like It’s Hot” and “Gin & Juice” , will be hosting Jersey City’s 5th Annual Fireworks show. The show will take over the Exchange Place area in downtown Jersey City with multiple events happening throughout (see map below). According to NJ.com, last years celebration drew about 100,000 people. However, this years celebration looks to draw double that.
After the Macy’s fireworks show swapped to the East River after many years on the Hudson, many from the Northern Jersey region see this as their premier fireworks show. In an interview with News12, Mayor Steven Fulop stated, “Four years ago I said that we would try to rival New York City eventually, and be the largest in the New York-New Jersey region and maybe one of the largest in the country.” So many many activities happening, what will your Fourth of July schedule look like?
