Independence Day Celebrations
Starts with the reading of the Declaration of Independence at the Unitarian Church around the corner on Orange Street at 10:00am, followed by the singing of the National Anthem and then performances by students from the Nantucket Community Music Center. The morning will be capped off by a “contained water contest” between the Town of Nantucket Fire Department versus the Boynton Lane Reserves at Noon (Please note: The public is invited to watch the water contest, but in the interest of safety, they will not be participating). Hungry for breakfast? Be sure to stop at the food trucks on Federal Street. Don’t forget to visit the Farmer’s Market on Cambridge Street and the Nantucket Island Center for Entrepreneurs showcase in the Atheneum garden on India Street.
