No Fireworks This Year at Cooper River Park
Pennsauken won't hold a fireworks display this year, as the township normally does in conjunction with the Fourth of July concert at Cooper River Park.
Fireworks won't light up the night sky above Pennsauken this Fourth of July.
The township normally holds a fireworks display each year in conjunction with the "Let Freedom Rock Fest" at Cooper River Park.
But, this year the fireworks won't go off because of budget constraints, Pennsauken Administrator Ed Grochowski said in an email.
In April Camden County officials announced that the Fourth of July rock concert at the park would not be held this year because money was tight.
That same month, the county laid off roughly 260 of its workers.
For the past decade, the county freeholder board held the Independence Day concert at Cooper River Park in conjunction with Philadelphia radio station WMGK 102.9-FM.
WMGK decided to move the rock concert, which will feature Yes and Styx, to the Susquehanna Bank Center on the Camden waterfront.
Unlike the Cooper River Park concert, it will not be free.
