Plymouth: July 4 parade and fireworks rescheduled to July 12

He says it was a tough decision, but Plymouth Selectmen Chair Ken Tavares is announcing the parade and fireworks have been postponed until next Saturday, July 12.

“The barge that is in Weymouth, the insurance company that insures the barge and the tug that brings it down, will not allow the barge to move this weekend because of the storm and the swells that will be in the ocean as they would try to come down the coast. So there wouldn’t be any fireworks under any circumstances,” Tavares said.

But he says there is a silver lining with the rescheduling.

“We have the Plymouth Harbor Roots and Folk Festival had already been scheduled. So entertainment will be on the waterfront from 12-7pm. People can plan a really fun day in Plymouth next Saturday,” he said.

The parade will start at 9am on the 12th, and fireworks that night at 9:30pm. The road race tomorrow morning is still on as scheduled.
