Boston’s Metro South area is rich in history, and there’s no better place in the country to celebrate the Fourth of July! Here’s a round-up of a few of the many celebrations honoring our nation’s Independence Day.

Hingham’s July Fourth Celebration is spread out over a few days. On June 29th at dusk, there will be fireworks over Hingham Harbor. The Independence Day Party starts at 3 pm, and continues on into the Community Celebration, which will feature live music by the Satuit Band.
