It's a "go" for Hingham's traditional Fourth of July fireworks display this year --sponsored by Showcase Cinemas and hosted by the Hingham Lions Club -- following a three-year hiatus. The July 1 display is expected to be the most spectacular one yet.
The town's Independence Day fireworks hark back to Civil War days, according to a history of the Hingham Fourth of July Parade by Dr. A. Alden Carpenter, a longtime Hingham resident who played the role of Uncle Sam for many years.
This year's Harborworks event will feature music, fireworks, and special activities -- the perfect way to start off the Fourth of July weekend in Hingham!
See you there!
