Mashpee, MA

Time: Around 8:45 p.m.

Place: Mashpee Middle/High School

Insider's Tips: The fun begin at 5 p.m. with a whole evening of food, rides, games, music, and activities for the entire family. Concerned about traffic and parking? Take a (free) shuttle ride from Old Barnstable Road to/from the festivities! 

Orleans, MA

Date:  July 6, 2019 (rain date July 7th)

Time: Dusk

Place: Rock Harbor

Insider's Tip: You can also see the Rock Harbor fireworks display from nearby Skaket Beach. The Cape Cod Bay beaches in Brewster and Eastham offer views of the big boomers, too. They'll be off at a distance, but still fun to see.



Sandwich, MA

Time: Around 9:30 p.m.

Falmouth, MA

Date: July 4, 2019 (rain date July 5th)

Time: Dusk

Place: Falmouth Heights Beach

Insider's Tip: Do you have a portable radio? Be sure to bring it with you, and tune to PIXY 103 (102.9 FM) to hear the music that accompanies the fireworks.

* Important - Be sure to check out Falmouth PD's parking and road closure info before you go, and plan accordingly!



Hyannis, MA

Date: July 4, 2019 (rain date August 31st)

Time: Dusk

Place: Lewis Bay

Insider's Tip: The best viewing spots are the beaches around Hyannis Harbor and on the West Yarmouth beaches along Lewis Bay. Pack a picnic basket for dinner and stake out your spot in late afternoon. Or have a bite to eat at a nearby restaurant, then walk to the beach for the fireworks show. (Don't forget your cover-up clothes. It gets chilly on the beach after sunset, even in July!)



Provincetown, MA

Date: July 4, 2019

Time: Dusk

Place: Provincetown Harbor

Insider's Tip: For a very special experience, watch the fireworks from onboard a ship in the Harbor. On July 4th, Dolphin Fleet offers whale watch plus fireworks cruises as well as a fireworks-only cruise. These cruises are very popular, so reserve your spot early. (Dolphin Fleet: 1-800-826-9300)

Onset-Wareham, MA

Date: July 6, 2019 (rain date July 7th)

Time: Dusk

Place: Onset Beach & Bay

Insider's Tip: The village of Onset is on the "mainland" side of the Cape Cod Canal, just over the bridge. It's an absolutely gorgeous little village, and well worth a visit!
