Get those lawn chairs and blankets ready. We will be listing the Metro West fireworks displays to celebrate the fourth of July. With Independence Day less than a month away, cities and towns across the state have announced when and where they’ll be having their annual 4th of July fireworks displays. Metro West, specifically.

With the fourth of July falling on a Tuesday this year, communities are holding their annual fireworks on different days leading up to, and on, the 4th. In some communities, fireworks are the main and only attraction. But in others, the fireworks are the finale after days of parades, festivals, food trucks, performances, and more.
Not to be the 4th of July grinch, but it would be remiss to not remind people of the dangers of personal use fireworks. From the website Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

“There have been 979 fires and explosions involving illegal fireworks in Massachusetts in the past 10 years. These incidents caused dozens of injuries to firefighters and civilians, along with millions of dollars in damages. All fireworks are illegal in Massachusetts for private residents. Massachusetts law prohibits the possession, use, and sale of fireworks by unlicensed individuals, even if you buy them legally in another state. Leave fireworks to the professionals and see a great professional fireworks display this year.”

Back to the fun! Fireworks are being held all over the Commonwealth, and here we’re going to focus on ones in the Metro West. The Metro West is loosely defined as the geographic region lying west of Boston and east of Worcester, in the U.S. state of Massachusetts. The name was coined in the 1980s by a local newspaper. There’s so much to do in the summertime in the Metro West. Go on a hike, pick your own fruit, visit a farmer’s market and so much more. For this post, we are focusing on all of the amazing fireworks displays taking place this week for the fourth of July holiday.
