For a joyful, all-American party in the bloom of summer, nothing can compete with the Fourth of July in New England. From huge too little, mountains to coasts, silly, to profound, there is a July 4th entertainment that will bring just the right sparkle to your summer. Examples of "big" are Boston Harborfest and the Boston Pops fireworks over the Charles River. In contrast, find your way to the Rhode Island town of Chepatchet for a DIY "horribles" parade. In between, we have parades and fireworks in many, many towns, barbecues and picnics, free live music, historic re-creations of Independence Day, harbor cruises. Whew! Enjoy the day!
