Address: Mashpee High School
Tips: This event starts at 5pm, and includes an evening of food, live music, games and rides before finishing off with a fireworks display. At 5:30 pm there is a family field day which anyone can participate in. Some of the events include a sack race and relay race for families to compete in together. At 6 pm there is a water balloon challenge, which is always fun for kids and the family. At 6:15 pm there is a frisbee demonstration by Todd Brodeur, and there is a K-9 show at 7 pm. At 7:30 pm, the Jeff Lowe Band goes on to entertain the crowd. There will be face painters, pony rides, a dunk tank, laser tag dome and much more to entertain the entire family. Please remember this event is held on school property, so there is absolutely no smoking allowed on the property. To find out more about this event, click here.
Address: Rock Harbor
Tips: Parking fills up fast at Rock Harbor and the surrounding area, so reserve your spot early or plan on doing a bit of walking to get to the fireworks. If you do not feel like dealing with the crowds at Rock Harbor or walking a distance to view the fireworks, you can always view the fireworks from the Brewster and Eastham beaches located on Cape Cod Bay. The fireworks will be a little distance away, but still visible. The rain date for the fireworks is 7/3.
Address: Falmouth Heights Beach
Tips: Bring your beach blanket and if you have a portable radio. The fireworks are set off to music, which you can listen to on the radio station Pixy 103 (102.9), which adds a little something extra to your experience. This is an impressive Cape Cod fireworks 2016 display, as it is the only one that offers that kind of music accompaniment.
Address: Wequassett Inn (Pleasant Bay, East Harwich)
Tips: The fireworks are considered private, as they are put on by the Wequassett Resort located on Pleasant Bay, but if you go to any beaches on Pleasant Bay, you would be able to view the firework display. The property is private, but the sky is free so find a spot to enjoy this impressive fireworks display. If you are interested in enjoying the fireworks display at this Forbes 5 star resort (the only one on Cape Cod), call the Wequassett directly to book a reservation at one of their amazing restaurants or get to the Outer Bar early to get a spot to partake in the festivities, as they fill up quickly on this night.
Address: Lewis Bay
Tips: The fireworks are set off over Lewis Bay, so the best places to watch these fireworks would be at any West Yarmouth beach and all along the Hyannis harbor. You can either bring a picnic blanket and pack a dinner or stroll the area and dine at any of the local restaurants on Main Street Hyannis before taking in the fireworks display. It’s important to find a spot early and reserve it with a blanket if you plan on leaving to grab dinner away from your fireworks spot. Don’t forget to bring an extra sweatshirt, as it gets a little chilly once the sun goes down by the water!
Address: Provincetown Harbor (easily seen anywhere on Commercial Street)
Tips: For a special experience, watch on board of a ship in the harbor. Dolphin Fleet offers a whale watch plus fireworks cruise at 5, 5:30 and 6pm. There is also a fireworks only cruise at 8pm. These are very popular, so reserve early (Dolphin Fleet: 1-800-826-9300). The town fills up early, since Provincetown is a popular tourist destination to spend the day to stroll. The bonus of a fireworks display at the end of the night draws even more traffic to the area, so leave early morning to get a parking spot before all lots fill up (as they usually do).
