The Fourth of July is popping in Salem! You don’t want to miss out on a day of patriotic activities and fun for the whole family.
Reading of the Declaration of Independence at Salem Common
Join local historians and friends at the Salem Common Gazebo for a reading of the Declaration of Independence at 9:00 a.m.
Salem Willows Horribles Parade
Not for the faint of heart, the Salem Willows Horribles Parade kicks off around this seaside neighborhood at 10:00 a.m.
Celebrate Independence Day with live music and family programming at Salem Maritime National Historic Site and a fireworks extravaganza!
Festivities begin at 5:00 p.m. with a musical act performing on the main stage. Opening ceremonies begin at 7:15 p.m, and are followed by a two-hour ‘POPS’ concert by the Hillyer Festival Orchestra, a forty-piece ensemble with vocal soloists performing opera to Broadway favorites. At 9:15 p.m. a magnificent fireworks display is launched from Derby Wharf accompanied by live music from the orchestra.
