FOX TOWNSHIP--The community celebration is back this year as Fox Township "Celebrates our Freedom" in a huge evening event at the Community Park.

With it looking like the weather will cooperate, everyone is looking forward to the fireworks at dusk, but the fun begins at 5 p.m. at the Park with concession stands, vendors, balloon artists, pony rides, and live music, at the huge park just outside of Kersey on Main Street. Besides the regular park playground equipment, inflatable rides are also on offer to keep the kids active, and maybe tire them out a bit before the light show begins at dusk.

Christy Deahl was announced the winner of the new tradition, the 4th of July House Decorating contest, that was instituted last year in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. It was such a hit that it was brought back this year, though the volunteers and staff of the Park have decorated extensively for the 4th this year.

The fireworks will be visible from much of Kersey, though houses along the Irishtown Road and Main Street will have the best views. There is no cost to attend, though organizers ask people to respect private driveways and not park unsafely along Main Street/Fairview Road
