New Bedford Independence Day fireworks over New Bedford Harbor on July 3

New Bedford, Massachusetts– Thanks to the sponsorship of Hawthorn Medical Associates and BayCoast Bank, the City of New Bedford announced the details of the City’s 2021 Independence Day fireworks display over New Bedford Harbor. Lead sponsor Hawthorn Medical Associates contributed $9,000 and co-sponsor BayCoast Bank contributed $7,500 to support the fireworks display in the city.

The City of New Bedford’s Independence Day fireworks display will be staged from a barge located off of State Pier in New Bedford Harbor, beginning at 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 3. Lower Union Street (east of Water Street) will be closed to vehicle traffic and will be the best spot in Downtown New Bedford to view the fireworks display.

In addition to the generous sponsorship of Hawthorn Medical Associates and BayCoast Bank, Tucker Roy Marine Towing & Salvage and AGM Marine Contractors will again support the 2021 Independence Day fireworks display this year by providing the commercial barge.

“Thanks to the generous support of Hawthorn Medical Associates, who have been a close partner as we have managed the effects of the pandemic over the past year, and BayCoast Bank, a longtime supporter of charitable and civic events in the city, New Bedford is looking forward to hosting a festive Independence Day weekend in downtown New Bedford,” said Mayor Jon Mitchell. “We invite residents and visitors to spend time downtown on the Independence Day weekend to celebrate and enjoy the fireworks display.”
