July 4th
« on: June 27, 2013, 06:55:55 PM »
Greetings!  We just moved to Hackensack and have really enjoyed getting to know the area!  I saw that there is a Fourth of July event at Foschini Park and I just wondered if any of you could tell me more about it.  Does it cost to get in?  Is there parking?  Do people bring blankets/chairs for the fireworks?  Can you bring a picnic?  Also, if there are any other 4th of July events in the area, please feel free to tell me about that too!

Thanks!!
