As the Fourth of July approaches, there's no better place to immerse yourself in the history than the South Shore! It's honestly kind of hard to believe that the fourth is next week, considering the amount of clouds and rain we've had in June.
Summer is slipping away, but don't worry! We have gathered a few of our favorite spots on the South Shore for you to check out local festivities and fireworks this year..keep reading to check it out!! 🥳
1. Plymouth Waterfront (Plymouth): To know Plymouth, to live in Plymouth - is to absolutely love it... From the Pilgrim roots and Mayflower connection, is a fantastic place to celebrate Independence Day. The town often hosts a spectacular fireworks display along our charming waterfront. As you find a spot along the harbor in front of the Plymouth Rock, you can take in the stunning views of the boats and the harbor while enjoying the dazzling fireworks show.
We're kind of partial because after all, who doesn't want to watch the fireworks in America's Hometown? 🇺🇸
A day of celebration will begin with the eighth annual 4th of July 5K at Stephens Field at 7:30 a.m.
The July 4th Parade will begin at 9 a.m. at Cordage Park and proceed onto Route 3A South/Court Street. The route follows Court Street, which becomes Main Street and then Main Street Extension, before turning left onto Water Street and finishing at Pilgrim Memorial State Park.
