For 103 years people somehow survived without this important scare mongering/safety advice. ThisRead More event is one of the great pieces of Americana from the chairs out all week through the fireworks it is a wonderful day. Lets celebrate our Liberty, not create fears to enslave us. All the advice is fine but by publishing it like this you create fear which dampens fun. You take one of the most safe, benign, wholesome events imaginable and make it frightening. Why? Towards what end? How about this advice: Go to the parade / fireworks and have some fun. Leave you smart phone in your pocket and meet some neighbors. If you can't figure out how to sit outside on a hot day, stay home or look it up online. Happy 4th everyone.

Long Time Resident- just noticed your comment- how mean spirited. You must be a member of the TeaRead More Party. They are mean spirited too. I can take people with different opinions- but I don't like people who are intolerant, racists, etc.

I'm sure it was very nice, but until you cut the parade down from 2.5 hours to something moreRead More manageable and entertaining (i.e. <1 hr), I won't be attending.

I have to agree about the excessive size of the parade. Why all the emergency service vehicles fromRead More Glen Rock, Ramsey, Wyckoff, etc, etc? I thought it was the RIDGEWOOD Parade?

Our committee thanks you for your comments. Our celebration was started by the Fire Department andRead More the Woman's Club, so we welcome the area departments, however we do try to limit the number of pieces of equipment each brings. This year there was a number of gaps between groups in the parade and that makes it last longer. We welcome you to join our committee when we begin to plan for 2013 in September !

Interesting video Tim, Politics is alive (and well?) in Ridgewood or is it still the same?

I am not sure about Politics being alive (and well?) - but apparently Patriotism is!
