Warren in Worcester to Celebrate the Fourth

Tuesday, July 03, 2012

 

Elizbeth Warren will be in Worcester to celebrate the Fourth of July at Cristoforo Colombo Park on Shrewsbury Street. Fireworks are set to go up at 9:30 pm, following other fun activities.

The senate hopeful will be making an appearance from 5:00 to 7:00 pm, as confirmed by campaign members at her local office at 442 Park Ave in Worcester.

The park opens at 6:00 pm with Kids Korner activities and food vendors. A ceremonial flag raising will begin the celebrations at 7:45 pm followed by a performance by the acclaimed Massachusetts Symphony Orchestra as part of their Summer Concert Series at 8:00 pm.

Warren supporters are also organizing efforts in Hopkinton and other towns across the state.

Brown Nowhere Near

Unless you plan on heading to the coastal region of the Commonwealth, you won't be seeing Senator Scott Brown on Independence Day. According to his press secretery, Brown will be attending three parades on the 4th, in Wakefield, Duxbury, and Plymouth.

A Politically Packed Parade

If you're ready for some polical fireworks, you should visit "America's Hometown" of Plymouth. Both Warren and Brown are scheduled to be at the parade this year. The event's organizing group, July 4 Plymouth, was founded when the town could no longer afford to pay for the annual parade and celebrations.

For other local Fourth of July activities, check out our list of festivities in the area. If fireworks aren't your favorite way to celebrate the nation's birthday, read about other festivities in the area.
