The Fourth of July is less about a week away, and to help you get your plans in order, we've come up with a list of area fireworks displays in Foxborough and throughout the region that might be of interest to our readers.
Foxborough will celebrate the Fourth of July on Tuesday, July 3 with a Fireworks Spectacular at Patriot Place beginning at 9 p.m. The display will last for more than 20 minutes, the same length as Boston’s annual Fourth of July fireworks and will be accompanied by a musical score available by tuning into Dean College Radio, Power 88 FM, at 88.3 FM, or streaming online at www.power883.org. Families can watch the fireworks show from inside Patriot Place’s North Marketplace or from the parking lots around Patriot Place.
