Jetties beach is the best place in Nantucket to view fireworks and celebrate the Independence Day. Each year, families and friends set up on the beach at Jetties beach and marvel at the spectacular fireworks show over the harbor. The amazing firework display is very popular and draws quite a crowd.
Fireworks are set off from a barge at Jetties Beach at 9:00. Come to Nantucket, and enjoy the fun. Call Visitor Services at 508-228-0925 for more info and brochures as the date approaches.
