Celebrating the 4th of July on Cape Cod is fun and provides us a glimpse of small towns with enormous patriotism. Of course there will be fireworks from Bourne to Provincetown but there will be parades on both land and water, sing alongs and concerts. The following are just a few of the events that have been scheduled.
Falmouth’s 10am parade includes bicycles and carriages with folks dressed in their costumes of Uncle Sam. It makes its way on Main St. and ends at the Margaret Noonan Park where prizes are awarded for the best costumes. There will be a Patriotic Sing-Along as well.
Cotuit’s starts at 11am from the Post Office, continues on to School St., then Main St. and ends at the Elementary School. There are floats, antique cars and the passing out of candy.
Orleans hosts their parade beginning at 10am from Eldredge Park winding along 6A to Main Street, Rte 28 and back to the Park. You’ll see members of the military, floats, bands and there will be prizes awarded for the best floats.
Provincetown also has a parade in the morning (11am) with floats and prizes for the best floats and Red – White and Blue outfits. Their Firework display begins at dusk which is approximately 9pm. They will be launched from a barge off MacMillan Wharf. The Dolphin Fleet has a fireworks cruise leaving at 8pm but reservations are limited.
We wish you all a SAFE and wonderful 4th!
Have a Cape Cod Day!
