This event, beginning many years ago as a parade in celebration of our Country’s independence, has evolved into a two day event featuring food, music and fireworks on the evening of the third and a Grand Parade on the morning of the fourth.

Festivities begin at 5:30 P.M. on Wednesday, July 3rd, with food and entertainment followed by the fireworks display at dark. The Celebration continues on Thursday, July 4th beginning at 8:30 A.M with the Charles River YMCA Road Race.
