Town of Hingham Announces Cancellation of July 4th Parade, Harborworks and Road Race

A message from Police Chief Glenn Olsson

The 4th of July Parade Committee, Hingham Recreation Commission (Hingham Road Race) and the organizers of the Harborworks fireworks have announced that the Parade, Road race and Fireworks are cancelled this year due to public health safety concerns surrounding COVID-19 and social distancing.

The decision to cancel the July 4th events follows numerous meetings between each of the individual planning committees for the Parade, Harborworks, and the Road Race, Hingham Police, Hingham Fire and the Hingham Downtown Association. I would also like to thank the Board of Health for keeping us informed of the latest information that helped in guiding our decision.    

I would mention that this was not an easy decision but we all feel it was the right one.

The three organization will continue to collaborate and will be organizing a campaign to help give back to the town and citizens in a meaningful way. They are eager to keep the spirit alive for next year’s 4th of July celebration 

Each of the organizations will provide additional updates on the status of their events for 2021.
