In Englewood, NJ, summer means fresh produce, nature exploration, fireworks and community.

As the Fourth of July approaches, prepare to take in the beautiful light show provided by Englewood’s Independence Day Fireworks Celebration, taking place on the Dwight Morrow High School front lawn on Wednesday, June 27th at 7pm. In addition to the dazzling fireworks, you can look forward to food, performances, live music and inflatables. In case of rain, the event will be held the following evening.

On Friday morning, the weekly farmers market can help you recover from the celebration. Take advantage of all the fruit, vegetables, eggs, flowers and other straight-from-the-farm offerings from 11am to 6pm at Depot Square Park on the corner of North Van Brunt Street and Demarest Avenue. If you can’t make it out this week, have no fear: the market will be held every Friday through October 26th.
