4th of July celebrations: Fireworks, festivities, and safety

As usual, Southborough will save its fireworks display for Summer Nights end of season celebration (August 29th.) Our town’s one mini-celebration is the Southborough Library’s kids’ parade this Thursday. And neighboring towns won’t have anything official “bursting in air” this week.

But if you’re up for a drive, here’s a list of fireworks displays scheduled in Massachusetts this week and beyond.

If you’re a baseball fan, the Worcester Bravehearts will be putting on a display after tonight’s game. The PawSox will be shooting off works on Thursday and Friday. And the Boston Red Sox will be putting on a show set to music after their Friday night game.

Other area Independence Day festivities this week include carnivals, music and more. (Once again, expect to travel to participate.) Check out the listings, here.

If you’re thinking of making your own festivities, the Southborough Fire Department would like to discourage you from adding explosives to the mix. The department shared this warning of the dangers on Facebook:

Finally, it looks like there might be one event to attend in town on Independence Day – Meet the Farmer at Chestnut Hill.

It’s more of a coincidence than a 4th of July celebration. But it does offer a fun diversion for those staying in town. I’ll share details on that later.
