Durham July 4th Celebration
The viewing area will open at 7 PM and the fireworks will begin at 9:15 PM. Rain date is July 5th, same time.
The Rotary Club of Durham-Great Bay welcomes everyone to the annual July 4th fireworks celebration.
This year, there are several changes due to construction at UNH’s Cowell Stadium. Access to the fireworks viewing area is confined to the round-about located on Main Street across from the UNH horse barns. The viewing area is grass so bring blankets and/or chairs. Unlike previous years there will be no children’s activities offered. The Durham Fire Department and the McGregor Ambulance Corps will have equipment on hand for touring. Picnic meals are encouraged.
Parking will be at Lot A (across from the Field House). Fireworks will be preceded by music, the presentation of the colors by the Newmarket Militia, the singing of the National Anthem, and presentation of musket and canon fire from the Newmarket Militia.
We are dedicated to providing accurate event information, however, we advise calling ahead to confirm dates, times, location, and other details.
