If you're looking for alternatives to the touristy Independence Day events in Downtown Boston, you might be satisfied with a Fourth of July Celebration in one of the city's northwestern suburbs. This outdoor bash is commonly known as simply Somerville Fireworks and takes place in Trum Field on 541 Broadway, Somerville. The show is typically scheduled on the last day in June, with the rain day reserved for July 1. Still, the dates might differ from year to year.
Sommerville's Fourth of July Celebration opens the gates from 6:30 pm to 10 pm and features live performances with a spectacular firework extravaganza at the end of the festivities. Note that there will be no parking opportunities along the Broadway from Ball Square to Magoun Square and also on Cedar Street and Charles E Ryan Road, framing Trum Field eastbound from the Broadway. Find out more information on road closures' hours and other details on the Somerville Arts Council's official website and Facebook mentioned in the External Resources below.
