There is less than a month to get ready for our huge Fourth of July Celebration. The festivities will begin at 6.00 p.m with fun and festivities leading up to our annual fireworks display. Because the Haddonfield Memorial High School field is unavailable due to renovations at the school, the festivities will be held along Kings Highway between the Patco High Speed Line and Haddon Avenue. On the 4th we will have a parade. It is time to start planning, get a family, association or neighborhood group together. Given the creativity and talent in this community this should be a great parade. Now the details.
Watch the Fireworks from the Highway - July 3rd
This year our fireworks can be viewed from Kings Highway. They will begin around 9.20 p.m. To get warmed up there will be a party on Kings Highway, starting at 6.00 p.m. There will be a lot for families to do.
There will be plenty to eat. As always, the Lions will be serving hot dogs, drinks and pretzels. They will be located near Mechanic Street and King's Court. We will also have food trucks, located between Chestnut Street and the High Speed Line. At this time, the following trucks and other vendors are scheduled to be there
Beast of the Street, TBC
Loco Gringo's Street Taco Express, TBC
P.J. Whelihan’s Wing Truck, TBC
Cow and the Curd, TBC
The Lions Club with hot dogs, drinks and pretzels near Mechanic Street and Kings Court
CJ Dogs with all sweet things kids (and a lot of adults) love near Haddon Avenue
We will also have activities for children. J Dogs will have a number of activities near the Haddon Ave. intersection with Kings Highway. This includes Mickey's Play Park for toddlers, and a Hippo chow down, a double lane 20 foot slide, a 45 foot obstacle course and a bounce house for older children. Tickets will be $1.00 each (although the rides require 3 tickets). A wristband for unlimited rides will be available for $20.00.
We will also have entertainment. The Camden County Stage will be in front of the Shops at 116 Kings Highway. From 7.30 p.m. until the fireworks start, the Shore Thing will be performing.
The big parade - July 4rd
Our annual parade will, as always, be on the 4th, stepping off at 10.00 a.m. Please see all the details on our 4th of July page .

We’re All About Having Fun
The Haddonfield Celebrations Association (HCA) is a volunteer group sponsoring Haddonfields 4th of July Fireworks and Parade, Halloween Parade and Tree Lighting Ceremony and Santa Parade. We love Haddonfield, we love celebrations and we love creating memories for our families.
4th of July Parade and Fireworks
Our 4th of July Parade & Fireworks are the heart of our volunteer efforts to keep Haddonfield as the cradle of "small town America".
We've had bands (including Mummers), veterans, floats, and lots of kids parading down King's Highway for the last 75 years -- all topped off by a spectacular Fireworks extravaganza.
For a town that just celebrated its 300th birthday, could anything be more patriotic -- or more important to what makes Haddonfield special?
These are the memories that will be remembered for many future Fourths.
