Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

4th of July Fireworks Near Cambridge – 2011

4th of July in Cambridge MA

4th of July in Cambridge MA

Wondering about fireworks near Cambridge for this 4th of July?  Here’s the scoop on local 4th of July celebrations in and near Cambridge and best places to see the Boston fireworks.

This is last year’s post.  Click on the link to find July 4, 2012 info.

4th of July Fireworks In Cambridge

Cambridge doesn’t hold its own July 4th fireworks display but we have front row seats to the Boston fireworks that follow the Boston Pops concert.  You can make a day of it by the Hatch Shell in Boston or you can stay on this side of the river and soak it all in.  The Boston Pops concert begins at 8:30 pm on July 4th, 2011.  The fireworks display begins at 10:30 pm.  The Cambridge side of the river should be less crowded.  The Mass Ave bridge is a popular vantage point.  The fireworks can be seen from plenty of the taller buildings around town so if you know somebody with an upper level condo, dorm room or office give them a call!

Rumor has it that there will be games for kids etc on July 4th in Cambridge at Donnelly Field on Berkshire Street.  I’ve spent some time searching about online (is G-ogle broken? I’ve never had such a frustrating time pulling together info as I’ve had writing this post.  Perhaps it’s a combination of the big G losing its stuff and city and town budgetary cutbacks, but the local offerings seem somewhat anemic this year.) and can’t find an official announcement of any sort.

Arlington MA 4th of July Celebration

Catch the Boston Pops concert and the fireworks on the big screen at Arlington’s 4th of July celebration at Robbins Farm park.  There will be refreshments and the John Penny Band will supply musical entertainment beginning at 7 pm.  Make an evening of it – the gathering begins at 6 pm and the Boston Pops fireworks begin about 10:30 pm.  Robbins Farm Park is on Eastern Avenue in Arlington MA.

Lexington MA Fireworks

You can get an early start on fireworks in Lexington tonight at the annual Fourth of July Carnival sponsored by the Lexington Lions Club.  The carnival is open Saturday, July 2, 2011 from noon to 11 pm; on Sunday, July 3 from 1 pm to 11 pm, and on Monday, July 4th from 1 pm to 7 pm.  The fireworks are scheduled for tonight, Saturday, July 2, 2011 at approx. 9:30 pm.  The carnival is held at Center Field off Worthen Road.

Waltham MA 4th of July Fireworks

Neither Belmont nor Watertown have fireworks on the 4th of July so you may want to head over to the party in Waltham.  During the day on July 4, 2011 there’s a kid-focused event at Prospect Hill Park on Totten Pond Road.  From 10 am to 2 pm there will be inflatable rides, games, music, food and more.  Then at 5:30 pm the party starts at Leary Field on Bacon Street.  There will be food, music and the fireworks display starting at 9:30 pm on July 4th.

Somerville on the 4th of July

Somerville celebrates the Fourth of July early – its party was held on Thursday, June 30th with fireworks and entertainment at Trum Field.  Even earlier, they held a “4th of July” event on June 25th.  But if you want a chance to see fireworks on the 4th of July in Somerville you may want to head over to Prospect Hill Park where you’ll have a great view of the Boston fireworks along the Charles.
