Fantastic Fireworks

Each year, The Fessenden School’s athletic fields, located along Albemarle Road, serve as a major viewing area for Newton’s fireworks. This year, the fields are under significant construction and will not be available to spectators. For safety reasons, we are asking that visitors seek alternate viewing locations for the July 4th celebration.

Help Save the Fireworks!

For the past 27 years, Newton Community Pride has sponsored the July 4th Festivities for the City of Newton. With the help of our sponsors, this celebration has been totally free to the public.

Having enjoyed this event for so many years, free of charge, we hope that you will help keep this tradition alive. As Newton Community Pride celebrates its 27th Anniversary, please consider giving $25 (or any amount you choose) to help continue this fun-filled day for another 27 years!

Send a check payable to Newton Community Pride to 1000 Commonwealth Avenue, Newton, MA 02459 or use your credit card to make a tax deductible donation on-line.

Yes, I want to help support the Newton Fireworks! Make an on-line donation.
