Baby, you're a firework! Come on, let your colors burst...above five NH cities on July 4
The Fourth of July is less than a week away, and NH1 news wants to share our top five places to see fireworks and celebrate!
Many cities and towns across the state are hosting their own festivities for the nation's Independence Day, so this top five only covers five places where you can celebrate with music, food, and of course, fireworks.
The first location on this list comes from a viewer choice on NH1's twitter:
In Meredith, where the fireworks are lit from a barge on Lake Winnipesaukee, which is awesome— Wendy Lapham (@wendy_lapham) June 27, 2017
For anyone planning on joining Wendy at the Meredith firework show, make sure to arrive early to Lake Winnipesaukee for patriotic music and the fireworks display over the water.
The second spot to hit up on July 4 for all-day celebrations is Holman Stadium in Nashua, which will be having various events from 10 a.m. all the way until the fireworks show at 9 p.m.
At 8:30 p.m, the Spartan Drum and Bugle Corps will perform for everyone in attendance at Holman Stadium, so get there early for that show as well.
Third on our list to visit for fireworks is Manchester's 2017 Independence Day two-day celebration, which begins on Sunday, July 2, when USAF Heritage of America Band will play at Veteran’s Park Stage starting at 4 p.m.
The next day's festivities will take place at Arms Park around 6 p.m. with the 39th Army Band performing until the fireworks display around 9:30 p.m.
The next fireworks display NH1 recommends is the Star Spangled Spectacular at Bretton Woods at 5 p.m. on July 4.
The spectacular will take place at the Bretton Woods Ski Area and Adventure Center and feature bouncy houses (fun for ALL ages), cook-outs (also fun for all ages), and a music performance by The Crunchy Western Boys leading up to the fireworks display.
Last, but definitely not least, on NH1's personal favorites list for July 4 celebrations is the special fireworks display happening at Hampton Beach on Tuesday.
The show will happen directly over the beach, so make sure to bring a blanket and enjoy the beautiful night sky and explosions with an ocean backdrop.
On top of watching the flashy display, viewers at Hampton can walk the strip and buy as much fried dough, lemonade, and other snacks as their stomachs can handle.
NH1 has shared our top five locations this Fourth of July for celebrating and fireworks, but we want to hear yours, so leave us a comment or tweet about where you will be enjoying Independence Day this year.
