4th of July Parade Event Information

2020 4th of July Parade Cancellation

The 4th of July Parade Committee, Hingham Recreation Commission (Hingham Road Race) and the organizers of the Harborworks fireworks have announced that the Parade, Road race and Fireworks are cancelled this year due to public health safety concerns surrounding COVID-19 and social distancing. 

50 Flags Program Will Continue

Our annual 4th of July Parade continues to be deep in tradition and one of the major regional events that bring our entire community together to celebrate the anniversary of the birth of our nation. 

Although the parade will not take place this year, we wanted to still honor America. We will either drop off Flags with self-install instructions or install flags in accordance with social distance guidelines. This year we can offer flags for the two weeks surrounding the 4th.

Flags will be installed on the weekend of June 27th/ 28th.
Flags will be removed on the weekend of July 11th / 12th.

We will place 50 flags for a donation of $75 at your Hingham home, business, or place of worship for two weeks then be by to collect them. You may also order flags to donate to someone else.

Order Online Now!. All on line orders need to be submitted by June 21st or while supplies last.

Many are surprised to learn that no tax dollars are spent on the parade, which is funded 100% through private and corporate donations.  As the parade has grown, so have the expenses. The effort to orchestrate all of the parade needs is enormous and without the generous community contributions, business sponsorship, and several fundraising events, including the “50 Flags Campaign", our 4th of July Parade would not be possible.
