It was exciting news for Toms River and the surrounding area that there will be 4th of July Fireworks, since the Beachwood Fireworks have been postponed until Labor Day because of Covid-19.

It's so cool that Toms River businessman Jesse Sipe came through for Toms River. Sipe owns Sipe Adjustment Group, will sponsor the Fireworks Show at Shelter Cove in Toms River. Saturday, July 4th, 2020, Shelter Cove will have a 500 seat limit, due to government regulations.

According to the patch.com, here's the plan for the fireworks from Toms River Police: 

-Fireworks will begin at 9:00 pm.

-Toms River Police have announced bathrooms at Shelter Cove will close at 3:30 pm on July 4th and the parking lot closest to the beach will be emptied out getting ready for the fireworks show.

-There will be a safety zone in the water for boaters and will be patrolled by the Toms River Police Department.

-Once the parking lot is filled at Shelter Cove, the parking lot will be closed and there is "NO" parking on the grass.

-Toms River Police recommends alternate 4th of July Fireworks viewing areas:

***Skyview Park, Vaughn Avenue, Toms River

***Indian Hill Road and Hooper Avenue, Toms River - Parking Lots

***The Silver Bay Waterfront, Toms River

***Chadwick Beach

***Ocean Beach 1, 2, and 3

***Normandy Beach, Lavallette, Ortley Beach, and Seaside Heights Bay Side

Toms River Police are urging the public to stick to low-key non-explosive private explosive fireworks. They urge you to please let the professionals handle the "big" ones.

And please be courteous to your neighbors that might have a dog that is scared of fireworks, a little one home that might be scared, those with PTSD, etc.

It's sad that this is the first year in well over 15 years that Shawn and I will not be with you on the 4th of July in Beachwood. The Beachwood Beach fireworks are re-scheduled for Labor Day Weekend, and if they happen, you bet your bootie we'll be out there with you.

Have a happy and safe 4th of July.
