Thursday, July 4: Montclair’s annual parade steps off at 11 a.m. Fireworks at Yogi Berra Stadium, gates open at 6:30 p.m. $5 per person, free for children under five. July 4 is also the date for West Orange’s fireworks at West Orange High School and the fireworks at the Montclair Golf Club. The Kmart/Whole Foods parking lot in West Orange is usually a good place to see both of those last two. Caldwell and West Caldwell will also hold their joint fireworks at James Caldwell High School on July 4. The gates open at 7 and there will also be DJ entertainment before the fireworks. If you can’t get to the high school, there’s usually good viewing from the parking lot by the Chipotle in West Caldwell.
