Mayor Carlo DeMaria and the City of Everett are pleased to once again invite Everett residents to the City’s Independence Day Celebration. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, July 1st beginning at 3:30 at Glendale Park.
This year Mayor DeMaria announced the addition of a grand finale fireworks show to close out the event. The firework show, which will be shot off at Glendale Park and timed to an exciting musical accompaniment, will be after sundown at approximately 9PM.
In the past, Mayor DeMaria had hoped to bring fireworks to the City of Everett and this year thanks to new technology and changes in Massachusetts state law Everett will have fireworks for the City’s July 4th celebration.
Mayor DeMaria stated, “I am really excited to see fireworks for our Independence Day celebration for the first time that I can remember. It should be a great time for kids, families, and visitors.”
In the afternoon, residents are invited to Glendale Park for a BBQ, musical entertainment from various local bands and activities for family fun. Mayor DeMaria and other city leaders will be running the grills and handing out fresh fruits and veggies.
There will also be vendor booths with several giveaways and activities from: the YMCA in Everett, Girl and Boy Scouts, Everett Community Growers, Joint Committee for Children’s Healthcare, the Substance Abuse Coalition, RCN, Hot 96.9, Mayor DeMaria, City Council and Sal DiDomenico. All giveaways are first come, first served.
In case of inclement weather, the event will be moved to Sunday, July 2. If the event is postponed to the 2nd, residents will be notified by Friday evening, June 30 via Facebook posts and robo-calls.
Mayor DeMaria stated, “Community celebrations are one of the reasons why Everett was named one of the top ten places to live in Massachusetts. Please come join the celebration of our country and our community. I hope to see everyone there.”
