Somerville is kicking Fourth of July celebrations off early this year, holding its annual festivities on Thursday, June 28, at Trum Field. The evening will feature live entertainment starting at 6 p.m. and a 30-minute fireworks show beginning around 9:15 p.m.
The Somerville Sunsetters, local Disco-Funk band Booty Vortex, the USO Metropolitan New York Performers and the U.S. Air Force Band of Liberty will provide live music in the hours leading up to the fireworks show. If there is rain, the live music will be moved to the Somerville High School Auditorium and the fireworks will take place the following week on Thursday, July 5.
In addition to the June 28 Independence Day celebration, Trum Field will play host to FA.M.ily Fun Day on Saturday, June 30, from noon-5 p.m. (rain date of Sunday, July 1). The event, sponsored by the Sloane FA.M.ily, will feature a free barbecue, children’s activities, watermelon eating contests, face painting, music and much more.
Note that both events will cause several road closures and changes to bus routes. Details can be found here.
