Fireworks over Meredith Bay

A flotilla of boats filled Meredith Bay on July 4th for a prime viewing spot of fireworks launched by lakeside communities including Meredith, Center Harbor and Weirs Beach.

Nothing says summer louder than the booms, pops and crackles of a fireworks celebration or marching bands playing patriotic songs along flag-lined streets to celebrate the American spirit with an Independence Day parade.

Here’s the line-up of all the Independence Day celebrations taking place around the Granite State.
