The Falmouth Fireworks Display will be held on Wednesday, July 4th beginning at dusk off Falmouth Heights Beach and lasts about 30 minutes.
Our top priority is keeping the spectators safe, and that starts with keeping vehicular traffic away from the event area.
As in years past, traffic will be restricted from entering the Falmouth Heights area at 6:30 pm to ensure the safety of the spectators. Grand Avenue, Central Park Court, Nantucket Avenue, and several minor roads will be closed. Please refer to our website for a complete road closures map.
A temporary parking ban, including a “tow away zone”, will be implemented on July 4th starting at 5 pm and will stay in effect until the spectators safely leave the area. The ban includes Grand Avenue, between Walden Avenue and Central Park Court, as well as Worcester Court, between Jericho Path and Grand Avenue, including the grass median.
Free municipal parking is available at Peg Noonan Park, Mullen Hall Elementary School, Lawrence Middle School, and Teaticket Elementary School. Handicap parking is available at Bristol Beach and Surf Beach parking lots.
Attendees can also expect an increased police presence to help deter any inappropriate behavior. Police officers will be patrolling the area on foot, on bicycles, on all-terrain vehicles and in patrol cars.
In an attempt to alleviate traffic congestion as a result of the heavy volume created by the annual Falmouth Fireworks Display, the Falmouth Police Department has devised a traffic plan for vehicles exiting the Falmouth Heights area. Police officers, along with electronic message boards will guide motorists out of the Falmouth Heights area. Please refer to our Traffic Route Map.
The Falmouth Fireworks Display is a non-alcoholic event, and all laws governing the possession and consumption of alcoholic beverages will be enforced.
The public consumption of marijuana is prohibited in the Town of Falmouth, including at the Falmouth Fireworks Display. All laws governing the public consumption of marijuana will be enforced.
In the interest of public safety, all containers (bags, coolers, etc.) will be subject to random search. It is strongly recommended that attendees do not bring a cooler.
