Many towns no longer provide fireworks – WE DO – thanks to 1st Colonial Community Bank, the Borough of Barrington and the Borough of Runnemede. Some towns don’t have parades anymore – WE DO. These two events are among some of the longest standing traditions in our town and we need you to participate to keep the tradition going.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or Eileen Eckert Holcombe (email@example.com) in the Mayor’s Office or call 547-8585 and let us know if you will participate to help keep the parade and fireworks a continuing tradition in our great town!
A reminder that ALL CLUBS AND ORGANIZATIONS THAT HELD A COIN TOSS ARE REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PARADE. If you have a scheduled coin toss and do not participate in the parade your coin toss will be cancelled.
The Barrington Band will be providing patriotic music prior to the fireworks at Woodland School. We are one of the only towns in the area with our own band so please come out early and show your appreciation and support.
After the parade, join us for fireworks at Woodland School beginning at dusk (usually around 9:30/10:00). GET THERE EARLY to hear the Barrington Band play at Woodland School!
