Issue 21 | July 2022 |

Have you been thinking about an extra special way to observe the fireworks this 4th of July? Look no further than the NY Waterway 4th of July Cruise. From food and fireworks to drinks and DJs, this unique evening cruise provides a one-of-a-kind view of the Macy’s Fireworks Celebration along with live synchronized music presentations. This magical and memorable cruise departs from Port Imperial in Weehawken, New Jersey and will sail along the Hudson River with Manhattan’s breathtaking skyline to its side and the dazzling display of fireworks above.

And if watching the world-famous fireworks on a cruise wasn’t enough, head over to Jersey City early for a fun-filled day at one of the biggest 4th of July celebrations in the region. Expect local eats, shopping, and music will be presented by the Jersey City Night Market along with a free concert featuring Grammy-nominated rapper, Flo Rida, and DJs Funk Flex and Shaquille O’Neale. This free, family-friendly festival kicks off at Exchange Place in Jersey City at 12pm and lasts until the fireworks display lights up the sky at 9:30pm. Please note that additional security measures will be in place for the festival.
