“When the kids were younger, we used to see them [the Kaboom! Fireworks} but not every year… I live in Belmar now so I guess I’ll stay home or go to a party.”
– Karen Brown, 65, Sea Girt

“I am going to Long Branch, right along the boardwalk, beach for Oceanfest.”
– Nicole Ashby, 28, Morristown

“I’ll probably work. My friend is having a party so I told him I‘d work his Fourth of July party as a lifeguard… I used to watch fireworks from my friend’s house who lived close to Sandy Hook and we used to chill there and watch them there.”
– Andrew Perfetto, 16, Little Silver

“I’m from Point Pleasant Beach. I’m just going to barbecue with my family and a few friends from our church. To me – it doesn’t matter. For my kids – maybe – if the fireworks [in Red Bank] were canceled. I saw them as more of a tourist thing.”
– John Durante, 47, Point Pleasant

“Probably just stay home with my family. I have two young kids and crowds are not really my thing.”
– Damon Kozul, 43, Lincroft

“I’ll probably go to my uncle’s house for a barbecue. I’m not really a fireworks type of guy.”
– Rylee Scott, 16, Little Silver

“I have no idea now. I guess go into the city to see the fireworks… The Red Bank residents used to watch the borough’s fireworks display from their boats.”
– Michelle Higgins, 33, who was with her 5-year-old son Matthew on Broad Street
