Tis the season to get outside, especially as we celebrate the fourth of July this year with family, friends and fireworks. Many of the local events we know and love are back on, with safety recommendations in place. These include fourth of July fireworks shows in Amesbury and Gloucester Mass., as well as Portsmouth and Hampton NH (see image).
Amesbury’s fireworks also close out the 121st Amesbury Days, a multi-day celebration that includes concerts, a yard sale, movie nights, a 5K and more. These events are happening now through July 4th. The fireworks show is held at Woodsom Farm on Sunday, July 4th at 9:30 p.m.
