4th of July Fireworks and Parades: Enjoy Safely
The 4th of July fireworks and parades are the official start of the Cape Cod summer. Towns throughout the Cape have spectacular light shows and crowd-pleasing activities that last all season long. Lobster rolls, clam bakes and clam boils, barbecues, biking, boating and bashes begin. People visit whether it’s for a week or the entire school vacation and they come from all over – Boston, New Hampshire, New York, Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and as far north as Canada. It’s a blast no doubt! However, with the crowds come increased traffic, congestion in small towns and a lot of partying to boot.
The law office of Aiken & Aiken have experienced the pitfalls summer fun brings over four decades. They urge everyone to have fun but to drink responsibly, act respectfully as it relates to others and property and please, follow the rules of the roads in Massachusetts. If precautions are acknowledged and safety comes first, summer will be filled with a lifetime of happy memories. Enjoy theses events while you enjoy all that Cape Cod has to offer.
