In Hoboken (pictured) there were few available spots on the piers and on the grass, as people were packed. Police kept checkpoints to look for contraband.
People viewed the display, which kicked off after 9:30 p.m., from Jersey City, Hoboken, Guttenberg, North Bergen, and Weehawken.
Have a great holiday weekend.
