I have always loved the 4th of July celebrations in Sharon MA. As a kid, growing up in Sharon MA, I decorated my bike to ride in the parade from Height's Shopping Plaza up South Main Street and past the judges sitting in front of Town Hall. (That's me in the photo on the right). I dreamed of the day when I would be able to ride on a float! Of course, Sharon always celebrates on the 3rd of July! Click here for the schedule of activities. That way, you can still head into Boston on the 4th to see the fireworks there.

Here are 5 tips to keep your 4th of July Activities Safe even in you're celebrating on the 3rd in Sharon MA!
