The downtown Paterson businesses have teamed up to host a two-day extravaganza that includes fireworks to commemorate America’s independence day on July 4 and 5.
The event will run both days from 2 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Main Street featuring rides, live music, food vendors, children’s entertainment, and sales at most downtown retailers.
Wrist bands will be available for sale both days. Wrist bands are $5 with any downtown store receipt or $10 without a store recipient.
Portion of the proceeds from rides will be donated to the Northern New Jersey Girl Scouts.
The event is organized by the Downtown Special Improvement District and downtown Main Street merchants.
