Jersey City Freedom & Fireworks Festival

FreedomandFireworks2016

YAAAS, Jersey City. Shout out your Fourth of July Freedom from the rooftops, or just join the party on ground level at Liberty State Park for the Freedom & Fireworks Festival.

Here we have live bands, carnival rides, food & drink, and of course…fireworks on the Hudson River.

The best way to get to Liberty State Park is probably by bike, considering the long walk you will have by car or PATH methods. The next best option is the Light Rail. Please read NJ Transit Advisories for the Fourth of July Freedom & Fireworks Show to plan your trip for maximum fun.

See you there!

Fast Play from the NJ Lottery is a new series of games that delivers what it suggests: fast results. No need to select numbers or wait for drawings. To purchase a Fast Play ticket at your New Jersey Lottery retailer, just ask for Fast Play, name your game, and then collect prizes quickly. Fast Play games are offered at various price points ranging in price from $1 -$5 per ticket ($10 games will be released later this year) and themes.

Here are the odds and potential winnings: Fast Cash- $1, win up to $500, overall odds 1 in 4; Red Hot Numbers- $1, win up to $1,000, overall odds 1 in 3.9; Slots of Fun- $2 win up to $5,000 overall odds 1 in 3.8; Bling Bling Bucks- $5, win up to $25,000, overall odds 1 in 3.2.

I purchased five tickets from my local lottery retailer in Jersey City, New Jersey.

Unfortunately, I was not a winner this time, but there’s always next time! I’m looking forward to playing some of the new games too. Fast Play games will be refreshed and changed every few months, so you can always find a new favorite. It’s exciting to switch things up every now and then. And with the great odds, why not play? I consider buying a $1-5 ticket a little treat on the way home from work—one that may even end up multiplying my money. It’s a small investment to win big.

The Fast Play game is not carried in New York or PA., only New Jersey. Here is additional information about Fast Play. Get out there and take a chance with instant wins and great odds!
