Falmouth celebrates the holiday with one of the best fireworks displays in the region. The town has been putting on a fireworks display since 1975 and the celebration has grown steadily over the years. There is a dedicated group of volunteers that work hard to keep it funded and vibrant. The event is funded solely by donations.
For 2018, there will be a concert featuring country singer Ayla Brown. The concert begins at 6:45 pm and lasts until approximately 8:45 pm.
The fireworks are staged from a barge offshore by Atlas PyroVision. The show begins at sundown this year on Wednesday, July 4. Local radio station Pixy 103, 102.9 FM, programs music for the show. One of the best places to watch the show is at Falmouth Heights Beach, near the British Beer Company at Central Park Avenue.
