New Hampshire July 4th celebrations are plentiful. In fact, you might have a harder time deciding which ones you don’t want to go to than finding one in the first place.
15th Annual American Celebration in Portsmouth
On July 1st, 3rd, and 4th, the Strawbery Banke Museum in Portsmouth has a festival in honor of the country’s anniversary, featuring activities ranging from 1940s-style swing dance to a Naturalization Ceremony for new citizens to the Old-Fashion Field Day event.
2nd Annual Light Up the Sky in Salem
Nearby Salem High School celebrates its second year hosting this 4th of July event with food, drink, and activities that include dancing, fire safety trailer tours by the Salem Fire Department, and even the singing competition Salem Idol.
Big Island Pond Fireworks Show
A lake that stretches from Atkinson through Darry and Hampstead, the Big Island Pond is an awesome place to be for the annual fireworks show. The date is currently set for July 3rd, but if the event is rained out it will be moved to the next day on July 4th. The show begins at 9:15pm.
Fireworks Over Wolfeboro Bay
This one’s a bit of a drive from Hurlbert Toyota’s hometown of Epping—an hour drive, to be exact—but the spectacle of the July 4th parade followed by fireworks over Wolfeboro Bay that evening is an event that can’t be missed.
