Hingham's 4th of July celebration is one of our town's most cherished traditions. It's our patriotic prelude to the summer season, a festival of Americana where family and friends gather with fanfare. From the vibrant fireworks over the harbor to the spirited cheers along the road race and grand parade where historic Main Street is decked in red, white and blue, Hingham's 4th of July celebration continues to grow year and year.

The 2016 4th of July Parade Theme is "Liberty and Justice for All" as selected by the Parade Committee. After many creative designs, the Committee chose a drawing by Claudia Montenegro, who used the American flag as her subject in a wonderful design that is already selling quickly around Hingham.
