Haddonfield Celebrations sends a big thank you to all who made donations to our annual fundraising appeal. While the Borough of Haddonfield contributes $10,000 for our efforts, our expenses are over $35,000. The fireworks alone cost $22,500. We couldn't do it without you, THANKS! (I hate all caps, but we do want to shout our thanks.)
Special Note about Kings Highway Road Work
Because of the work on the Kings Highway bridge over the PATCO High Speed Line tracks, there will be changes to traffic pattrerns and this will affect some of the staging for the Yankee Doodle Do and the Eourth of July Parade. We will keep you informed, We have set up a Twitter accoun, @08033Celebrate, to insure quick information about these events. Please follow us to insure you get the latest updates.
Celebrate the Forth of July in Haddonfield
Two hundred and forty six years ago, the founders of our countryt signed a Declatation of Independence. We will be commemorating that event with our Yankee Doodle Do and Fireworks on July 3rd and our Parade on July 4th.
The Yankee Doodle Do will start at 5.00 p.m. on July 3rd. It will take place on Kings Highway between the PATCO track bridge and Haddon Avenue, which will be closed to traffic for the event. There will be food trucks, a stage with music, bounce houses for children (a fee is charged) and a chance to enjoy a good old fashioned street fair. The evening will culminate with Fireworks around 9.00 p.m.
The Fourtn of July Parade will start at 10.00 a.m. It will kick off at the corner of Kings Highway and Chestnut Street and go down the Highway to Haddonfield Memorial High School. It will have string bands and other bands, our local commissioners and citizen of the year, civic and neighbor hood groups, kids on bikes and vintage cars. Plan to be there.
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.
