If you’re in Falmouth, you can see fireworks at Falmouth Heights Beach at dusk on the 4th (or the 5th if it rains) – and this display is a cool one because if you have access to a radio, you can tune into PIXY 103 (102.9 FM) to hear music to go along with the fireworks.
Provincetown is also having a fireworks event on the night of the 4th.
If you’re from Massachusetts, you know the 4th of July in Boston is not the same without the Boston Pops Spectacular! Have fun on the esplanade or enjoy from home on WHDH-TV Channel 7 and Bloomberg TV and radio from 8-11pm. This year is even more special not only because this is Keith Lockhart’s 27th year as the conductor for the Boston Pops, but because this is the first time in three years that the orchestra is able to play in person at the Charles River Esplanade. You won’t want to miss this! Find out more at the Boston Pops website.
Lastly, for our RI listeners, there’s no shortage of events for you either! Head down to Bristol and enjoy a parade at 10:30am on the corner of Chestnut Street and Hope Street route 114. To find out more about the parade visit their page here.
