Event Details

Boston Harborfest is the largest festival dedicated to the USA Independence and takes place before the 4th of July. The festival includes week-long events and family-friendly activities.

The Festival starts with an interesting opening ceremony with battle Colonial-era reenactments. After that, you can enjoy the art display by local artists and get a few souvenirs.

However, central parts of the festival are the Parade of Lights and Fireworks with festively lit boats of all shapes and sizes and magnificent firework shows. Also, while you are there, try not to miss Historic Freedom Trail, a walk across 16 Freedom Trail historic sites with a professional tour guide.

Boston Harborfest can be an outstanding way to experience the atmosphere in the USA celebrating independence.
