Salem's 4th Of July Fireworks Have Been Postponed

NASHUA, NH — July 4 events across the country will not look the same this year thanks to the new coronavirus.

Many communities have been forced to cancel or postpone their annual Fourth of July events, including Salem. The Salem Board of Selectmen made the decision a few weeks ago.

Although Salem's fireworks and festivities have been postponed, there are other things to do in town.

Adventure Camp registrations have reopened for the week of July 9.

Currently, parks in town are closed, and the senior center is, too, although some events, like dance aerobics, were held outside the rec center earlier this week.

Canobie Lake Park is preparing to reopen on July 16. It is unknown at this time whether or not they will be hosting their fireworks displays will be held when they do reopen.

Due to the pandemic, counties or cities may adjust or cancel events at the last minute. Check your event before you go. Know of other events in the area? Post them on the Patch calendar or share details on our free Neighbor Post feature.
