Fairhaven has really pulled out the stops this year for its Bicentennial Week and the Fourth of July. All events are free and open to the public.
Saturday, June 30th is Homecoming Day Fair at Town Center—with booths, amusements, and lots of great food. On July 1 the Fire Apparatus Parade is at 11 a.m., and the Firefighter’s Competition at 1 p.m. in Livesey Park.
On Wednesday, July 4th, there’s the now-traditional classic car cruise to Fort Phoenix at 9 a.m., followed at 10 a.m. by the 14th Annual Fort Phoenix Independence Day Ceremony complete with a reading of the Declaration of Independence and singing of the National Anthem.
This is a must see, especially when the Fairhaven Village Militia fire the five 24-pound Seacoast Defense cannons. Duck, New Bedford!
The day ends with fireworks over the harbor.
