Get Ready for the Fantastic 2016 Fourth of July Celebration!

Millburn Short Hills Fourth of July Committee to announce the 2016 Patriot Award Recipient

Each year, the Millburn Short Hills Fourth of July Committee presents the Patriot Award to a group or individual(s) who embody strong leadership skills and is active in community service. Award winners have their name, or group's name, added to a plaque on a boulder in Taylor Park.


The Millburn Short Hills Fourth of July Committee is very proud to recognize our Patriot for their service to the people of many communities. 

The Patriot Award will presented on Monday, July 4, at 9 a.m., in Taylor Park. Township and area residents, friends and their families are invited to this award presentation along with the flag raising ceremony.


The July Fourth celebration begins with the flag-raising at Taylor Park at 9 a.m., followed by the Patriot Award presentation, and then by the ever-popular bike/trike/stroller parade at 9:30 a.m. and the Girls’ All Star softball game at 10:00AM

At 3:00PM the event moves to Millburn High School front lawn which will be transformed into a festival for the whole family.

At night the activities move to Millburn High School Field, with music provided by Summit Soundz,  starting at 7. The day’s events will culminate with a fabulous fireworks display at dusk.
