New Bedford Independence Day fireworks postponed until Monday, July 5 at 9:00 p.m.

New Bedford, Massachusetts– New Bedford’s Independence Day fireworks over New Bedford Harbor have been postponed and are now planned for Monday, July 5 at 9:00 p.m., due to the forecast of inclement weather this weekend. The fireworks had initially been planned for Saturday, July 3.

The fireworks are made possible thanks to the generous sponsorship of lead sponsor Hawthorn Medical Associates in the amount of $9,000 and co-sponsor BayCoast Bank in the amount of $7,500, as well as the support of Tucker Roy Marine Towing & Salvage and AGM Marine Contractors, who again have supported the fireworks display this year by providing the commercial barge.

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 Monday, July 5. 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.
