Claremont to Host July 4th Celebration

The Claremont Parks and Recreation Department is excited to announce the Annual July 4th Celebration at Monadnock Park on Thursday, July 4th. The excitement will begin at 6 PM with many local vendors on hand selling food, drinks, and novelty items. “We are excited to have Last Kid Picked, a local band that is considered one of New England’s best cover bands, playing a variety of musical genres. The band is great for dancing or listening to and provides an enjoyable experience for all audiences,” explained Mark Brislin, Parks and Recreation Director for the City of Claremont. “July 4th is a great time to bring the community together and celebrate,” explained Brislin. All of these fun events will lead up to the spectacular fireworks show at 9:30 PM to conclude the evening.

This year’s fireworks display is presented by McGee Toyota of Claremont. To help continue the popular July 4th celebration in future years, the Claremont Parks & Rec. Dept. will be asking for a $1 donation at the entrance of Monadnock Park. Your support is greatly appreciated to help continue this tradition; donations for the fireworks fund can also be sent to or dropped off at the Claremont Savings Bank Community Center, 152 South St., Claremont, NH 03743, during business hours.

Parking spaces will be available along Broad Street and Pleasant Street. Only handicapped and authorized vendor parking will be allowed at Monadnock Park. In the event of inclement weather, the rain date for this event will be on July 5th.
