AWESOME BOSTONCelebrates the 6th of July at Salem Harbor!
5:30 pm - 10:00 pm
For thirteen years residents and visitors have gathered on Derby Wharf at the Salem Harbor to celebrate Independence Day. Bring your beach blankets and folding chairs to enjoy the 42-piece Hillyer Festival Orchestra on Derby Wharf at the Salem Maritime National Historic Site for a grand celebration of our nation’s Independence Day. Featuring a Pops concert, a Kid Space play area, and fireworks launched over Salem Harbor, this is a quintessential celebration of the 4th of July.
Fireworks begin at approximately 9:15 pm
NSS invites all of it's members and guests to celebrate the 4th of July together. Let's enjoy a picnic, music, and good conversation followed by the area's largest and most popular fireworks festival. Please bring your own seating (BLANKET OR CHAIR) and one food item to share.
