Audubon 4th of July Celebrations: Parade, Community Events & Fireworks

Thursday, July 4, 2013: Audubon New Jersey goes all out for the 4th of July. We’ve missed them in our reports over the years and it looks like we’ve missed one of the best parties in South Jersey! This year the community is celebrating the 75th anniversary of their drum and bugle core: Here’s a quote from the site:

The Audubon Drum and Bugle Corps is the best known and most successful all-female corps. Celebrating their 75th Anniversary, the group was founded by Joseph and Florence Bernert in 1938. “J.B.” as he known, was in charge of the Murray-Troutt post #262 color guard and was given the task of starting a drum and bugle corps. He and his wife, “Mrs. B” believed it should be an all-female group to provide an activity for girls. Murray-Troutt sponsored the group for decades.

The parade starts at 8:30 in the morning and travels down Amherst Road and ends at the reviewing stand at the high school. The parade goes on rain or shine except for severe weather. The parade features the mayor and commisioners, string bands, cheerleaders, bicycles, softball teams, little league teams, local churches, floats, veterans, beauty queens, classic cars and firetrucks.

Once the parade is over the festivities continue with athletic events at 11:00 a.m. at the football field. The event features sack races, a wheel barrow race, a frog jump, an egg toss, a backwards race, a potato race and a balloon toss.

At 7:30 p.m. there’s a concert and ceremony that features the band High Noon Express and prize ceremonies. When it gets dark the day comes to a close with a fireworks display funded by the borough. The rain date for the fireworks is Friday, July 5th.
