Mayor Jon Mitchell today announced the details for New Bedford’s July 4th, 2012 fireworks display. Through the generous support and co-sponsorship of Hawthorn Medical Associates, LLC and DeMoulas Market Basket, the fireworks will be launched at 9:05pm on Wednesday, July 4th from a barge located in New Bedford Harbor just off of City Pier # 3.
“New Bedford is grateful to both Hawthorn Medical Associates and Market Basket for their co-sponsorship of New Bedford’s July 4th fireworks display,” said Mayor Jon Mitchell. In addition, Conrad Roy from Tucker-Roy Marine Towing & Salvage will supply the barge from which the fireworks will be launched.
“It’s on occasions like this that New Bedford really shines,” said Mayor Mitchell. He added, “With Independence Day, Summer Fest, and Cape Verdean Recognition Week all happening within days of each other, we are reminded of what a lively and vibrant place our city is.”
The public will have a clear view of the fireworks presentation from almost every point around New Bedford Harbor. The rain date is set for Saturday, July 7 at 9:00pm.
Prior to the fireworks display, the New Bedford Whaling Museum will host a free public concert in celebration of Independence Day at 6:30 pm on the Whaling Museum Plaza. For more information, visit www.whalingmuseum.org.
