Paramus Fireworks Always Spectacular

Revived by former Mayor James J. Tedesco III and kept for Paramus by Mayor Rich LaBarbiera, Paramus had its fantastic fireworks display on Sunday, July 6th, 2014. Westfield Garden State Plaza Shopping Center donated the costs of this ornate display, a fitting tribute. Prior to the display, while waiting for darkness to settle, the Paramus Community Orchestra played for the audience. Their powerful music strained the speakers that amplified the sounds to the crowd and surrounding area. The 4th of July Committee under the direction of Ace Antonio, paid stricter regard to the safety of everyone, closing entry to the Cliff Gennarelli Sports Complex fifteen minutes before firing time.

Mayor LaBarbiera welcomed everyone and thanked each member of the Paramus 4th of July Committee for all their long and hard work. Ann Marie Franson who headed the Parade segment received special accolades for dealing with the postponement sagaciously caused by the anticipation of Hurricane Arthur. The Parade was delayed for a day, but still came out in full force. Of course there was a lot of last minute juggling behind the scenes, but it was produced efficiently. The Food Drive along the route for the Paramus Friendly Neighbors was handled by the Paramus Sunrise Rotary Club with vehicles supplied by The Outlets At Bergen Town Center.  


While it did get dark, early enough, the actual fireworks display did delay for about ten or fifteen minutes more, much to the consternation of the waiting viewers and senior citizens who were anxiously awaiting the eclectic display. Residents of the Walter Behnke Senior Housing Complex were seated in their driveway and while they didn't have far to go,  were anxious to get back to their apartments. They were even treated to a lights out period while the fireworks were on display.
