Mars Borough July 4th Celebration

with generous support from Mars Bank


***Due to inclement weather — and after consulting with the company setting off the fireworks — the fireworks originally scheduled for for July 3, 2023 have been rescheduled for July 8, 2023. We apologize for the inconvenience, however we hope everyone will join us on July 8th to enjoy rain-free fireworks!***

Mars Borough’s July 4th Fireworks will be set off on July 3rd this year.

Listen to accompanying music on 88.1 FM.

All other festivities will still be held on July 4, 2023!

*** Mars Borough and Adams Area Fire will be watching drought conditions in the area. If a Red Flag Warning is issued the fireworks, unfortunately, will have to be cancelled or rescheduled due to the potential fire hazard. ***
