We are excited to announce that once again this year Beachwood will be having our famous fireworks display.!

About Beachwood's 4th of July Fireworks over the Toms River

Beachwood has been hosting the annual Independence Day Fireworks for 81 years now. Sadly last year we were unable to due to the pandemic, but this year they are back at their usual location at Beachwood Beach!

Sadly WOBM will not be broadcasting from the beach as they have in past years. They will be greatly missed, but hopefully they will return in 2022. Howvever, we are planning on a grander finale!

The best viewing spots are along the banks of the Toms River in Beachwood, Pine Beach, Ocean Gate, Toms River, South Toms River and Island Heights.

Viewing Beachwood's Fireworks by Boat

If you have a boat it is the perfect way to see Ocean County's largest 4th of July Firework's display! Just come up through Barnegat Bay and up the Toms River toward Beachwood. It does get CROWDED, so get a spot early!

Another great way to view the Beachwood 4th of July Fireworks from the water is with the fireworks cruise offered by the River Lady.

Beachwood Fireworks Donations

The Beachwood 4th of July Fireworks are completely funded through donations. No tax money is used to put them on, The funds go into a separate account and any money not used is simply kept in the account as an emergency reserve. If you wish to donate, checks can be made out to “Beachwood Fireworks,” and mailed to the municipal building at 1600 Pinewald Road, Beachwood, NJ 08722.


A lot of sites are listing the fireworks as taking place at Shelter Cove in Toms River. That was last year due to the pandemic. If you go to Shelter Cove or that area of Toms River, you will NOT be able to see this year's Fireworks Over the Toms River which will be shot off at Beachwood Beach.
