When: June 28, 2019 – July 5, 2019
About: This is a huge celebration in Ptown, with an Independence Day parade that begins at the Harbor Hotel at 11:00 and proceeds down Commercial Street as far as Franklin Street, with awards for the best float in various categories. A spectacular fireworks display starts just as darkness falls, usually around 9pm, and can be seen from any of the town beaches as well as from the Pilgrim Monument on High Pole Hill. The Dolphin Fleet offers both whale-watches with fireworks and fireworks-only cruises (they fill up quickly, so make reservations early!) The week represents an annual pilgrimage to town for many people, and the town often feels like one big party! Watch here for details as they are finalized.
