“I think the Jersey City side of Hudson River is going to be the place that people want to be for the 4th of July this year. Period. Between Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, Grucci, and Snoop, we are raising the bar,” Mayor Steve Fulop said in a statement.
The carnival-style spectacle, branded 50STAR FIRESHOW, spans the entire Greater New York City Area and will feature a headline concert performance by Snoop Dogg on the Private Internet Access stage in front of a 200,000 person audience lining the Hudson River Waterfront and area surrounding Harborside.
The all-day music, food, technology and entertainment experience boasts views of the New York City skyline, and will become the scene of the state’s largest fireworks show.
Spectators are encouraged to arrive by public transportation to the festival area, which is conveniently located with easy access to PATH trains, NY Waterway ferry service from Manhattan, and NJ TRANSIT’s Hudson-Bergen Light Rail.
Anyone attending the event should also be advised that any bags or backpacks brought into the designated area are subject to search, and attendees are encouraged to pack belongings in clear bags that show contents. Coolers will not be allowed.
