Fireworks Displays: July 4th Week

Mashpee, MA: July 1, 2015 (rain date July 2nd) at Dusk, Mashpee High School. The festivities begin at 5 p.m. with a whole evening of food, rides, games, music, and lots more.

Falmouth, MA: July 4, 2015 at Dusk, Falmouth Heights Beach. Do you have a portable radio? Be sure to bring it with you, and tune to PIXY 103 (102.9 FM) to hear the music that accompanies the fireworks.

Hyannis, MA: July 4, 2015 at Dusk, Lewis Bay. The best viewing spots are the beaches around Hyannis Harbor and on the West Yarmouth beaches along Lewis Bay. Pack a picnic basket for dinner and stake out your spot in late afternoon. Or have a bite to eat at a nearby restaurant, then walk to the beach for the fireworks show. (Don't forget your cover-up clothes. It gets chilly on the beach after sunset, even in July!)

Provincetown, MA: July 4, 2015 at Dusk, Provincetown Harbor. For a very special experience - watch the fireworks from onboard a ship in the Harbor. On July 4th, Dolphin Fleet offers whale watch plus fireworks cruises at 5 p.m., 5:30 p.m. and 6 p.m., as well as a fireworks-only cruise at 8 p.m. These cruises are very popular, so reserve your spot early. (Dolphin Fleet: 1-800-826-9300)

Onset, MA: July 4, 2015 at Dusk, Onset Beach & Bay. The town of Onset is on the "mainland" side of the Cape Cod Canal, just over the bridge. It's an absolutely gorgeous little town, and well worth a visit! The 4th of July holiday week may have the biggest and the best fireworks displays. But there are others during the year that are pretty darn good, too.

Orleans, MA: July 5, 2015 (rain date July 6th) at Dusk, Rock Harbor. You can also see the Rock Harbor fireworks display from Cape Cod Bay beaches in Brewster and Eastham. They'll be off at a distance, but still fun to see.
