Somerville Family Fun Day & Fireworks at Boston Events INSIDER
Today I list 130 Independence Day events, and that’s just the ones that come early or happen in Massachusetts. Next week I’ll branch out to all New England. Let’s start close to home. In Somerville, Thursday night they’ll have fireworks and then a family festival on Saturday.,

Cambridge City Dance Party

Cambridge, MA

Cambridge City Dance Party at Boston Events INSIDER
One of my favorite events of the year! I’ve been twice. It’s an outdoor block party with colored lights on City Hall. What better way to celebrate that the people own the government, not the other way around? 7-11pm. Massachusetts Avenue in front of City Hall. Seriously, you really need to go to this!,
795 Massachusetts Avenue Cambridge, MA


Marblehead Festival of Arts

Marblehead, MA

Marblehead Festival of Arts at Boston Events INSIDER
Marblehead has a sand sculpture competition (6/30), a kite festival (6/30), and 7/4 events including a “Horribles Parade”and harbor illumination (which I think is flares) with fireworks at 8:45pm.,
Marblehead, MA


Acton’s Beach Party Blast

Acton, MA

Acton's Beach Party Blast at Boston Events INSIDER
Possibly Acton’s biggest event of the year, with reggae music, water games, a sandcastle contest, and a watermelon eating contest! 1-5pm.,

Moonlight Paddle on the Charles River

Boston, MA

Moonlight Paddle on the Charles River at Boston Events INSIDER
It’s a great place to pop the question, but if the answer is NO, then you’re kinda stuck on a canoe. Under the romantic moon. 7pm.,

Boston Harborfest

Boston, MA

Boston Harborfest at Boston Events INSIDER
Boston Harborfest always offers something interesting. The trick is to ignore the stuff that happens all year (like guided tours, whale watches, and museums) and go for the special stuff. Check out the detailed schedule for a full list of events. Meanwhile, look for highlights here on the blog!,
