Salem celebrates our nation’s independence with a full day of celebrations and a fireworks display. The evening starts early at 5:00 pm with concerts, kids activities, face painting, games, contests, and prizes.
The fireworks are launched from the Derby Wharf along the harbor, which makes for quite a spectacle with the sailing ships, the lighthouse and the site that consists of a dozen historic structures.
The early concerts begin at 4:00 and 5:30 and a POPS concert featuring the Hillyer Festival Orchestra begins at 7:30 pm. The fireworks begin at 9:15 pm.
