2023’s Independence Day in Nantucket

The day’s activities begin at 10 am, thus giving you sufficient time to have breakfast beforehand. Until noon, there will be several activities on the main street. However, the town’s authorities are yet to specify what kind of activities these will be. Check out their website as D-day draws near for updates.

There will also be children’s beach activities from 9 am to noon. Your young ones can participate in activities such as singing the national anthem and patriotic songs, nanpuppet shows, singalongs, bike parades, games, snacking, and painting their faces.

To rejuvenate, you may have lunch at close-by eateries, including the Charlie Noble, The Whale, The Pearl, Nautilus, and the Club Car, to mention a few.

Children’s games will later resume at 5 pm. These include the three-legged, wheelbarrow, and potato sack races. The popular Tug-of-war will mark the end of the games.

You may then have dinner and move to Jetties Beach to await a fireworks display at 9 pm. The day’s planners promise you a spectacular show that will last for about 25-27 minutes.

Due to the speculated high traffic, parking may be quite a challenge. It is therefore advisable to use public transportation instead of a private car. NRTA buses will provide trips from the whaling museum to the corner of Bathing Beach Road and Hulbert Avenue every 20 minutes, from 6 pm to 9 pm.
