Well it’s a shame that this happened and I am sure there are people who are still lingering in disappointment since hearing that KaBoom Fireworks will not be displayed along the Navesink River in Red Bank this year.
It broke my heart when I saw it come across the wire. For 50 continuous years, a fun family time of food, entertainment, catching up with friends, and most importantly fireworks was celebrated in the 2.2 square miles of Central New Jersey called Red Bank. It was the party of all parties, a display of lights flashing across the night sky bedazzling spectators while synchronized to music played on Q104.3, but this year the night sky will be only illuminated from the light of the stars swirling around our universe.
I will need to rethink my plans for this year. After all, there is still Long Branch. They have Oceanfest along the boardwalk and promenade on Ocean Avenue. Oceanfest lasts all day long and will tire out even the most energetic child.
Farewell KaBoom, maybe next year or possibly the year after, but I truly hope to see you again.
