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. Each year the spirited cheers along the road race and the 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.
July 4th, 2019 marks the 61st continuous running of the Hingham Road Race. One of the region's oldest footraces, this premier event starts our Independence Day celebration, and is one of the town's richest traditions.
The 2019 4th of July Parade Theme is "Celebrate Hingham's Natural Beauty" as selected by the Parade Committee. Look for Parade Buttons dedicated to this theme at Hingham Centre and downtown Hingham businesses in June.
The Fourth of July fireworks are postponed until 2020 due to a lack of organizers needed to orchestrate the event in 2019.
The Lions are seeking help and input to address the challenges of hosting the historic July 4th tradition. If you would like to help or be a volunteer going forward, please contact Mark Casale at firstname.lastname@example.org.
