EHC Hometown Celebration

Since: Jul 07

#1 Jul 30, 2007
I have lived in Egg Harbor City since 1984 and I recall how fun the Hometown celebration used to be when it was done at the Memorial Park on route 30. Those evenings the family would gather early when the celebration began for the evening and leave at closing. Walking around the park you would see all the local town people you normally saw at the schools, post office,shopping, your neighbors from down the block, and most important, we would see our senior citizens. Everyone in town would walk the two nights of celebration to the park. These past few years at the Celebration by the EHC Lake, people that don't drive can't get there, and the ones that walk with their families are risking getting hit by a car en route the long path to get there. I witnessed many teen girls walking in the dark wooded areas en route to the park or their cars at the isolated parking areas, no matter how well lit, it's a tragedy waiting to happen, anyone in those woods are prone to get robbed, assaulted or God forbid killed while the police put their focuses on directing traffic. As for our seniors, most of them are a no show year after year. Most don't drive and most won't risk being in those woods late at night!! And for as how many town people you encounter at the celebration? They are very few, making me believe that these celebration is being enjoyed mostly by other nearby towns citizens instead of our ol good citizens of Egg Harbor City. And does anyone recall how all came to a stand still when fireworks were in the process? Now you witness everyone heading towards the wooded area they left their cars parked to make it out of there safely or not to get caught up in the crazy scenario of all that traffic trying to get out.
