Kabooms! July 4th Fireworks + Parades happening around the Seacoast!

The seacoast knows how to celebrate the 4th of July! Several towns are holding special firework displays for the holiday and throughout the summertime. Check out our directory of fireworks, parades and more celebrations listed below! Happy Birthday America!

Don’t forget, if you’re bringing little ones with you, hit up your local drug store and purchase child ear plugs. Those loud aftershocks can be startling and frightening to toddlers, pets, and young children (or even some adults I know….and you know who you are).

Wishing all seacoast families a safe and happy holiday weekend!
