Fourth of July in Ogunquit Maine

There's no tradition quite like a Fourth of July fireworks display. Lawnchairs and blankets line the grassy viewing area as spectators wait for spellbinding colors, thrilling explosions and intriguing shapes to paint the sky. The event may be magical—especially for the kids—but of course, its all the product of meticulous chemistry and clever ballistics.  

Modern technology has made it possible to utilize the dark night  sky for multishot displays and captivating grand finales. Over 46,000 fireworks are set off within a 30 minute set, and this is for the average firework display. It has been said that a minutes worth of firework blasts takes up to 2 hours of preparation and organization to make it look as brilliant as it often does.

This sounds like a lot of work, but luckily for us-- all we have to do is sit back and enjoy it. The town of Ogunquit does a great job every year putting on a wonderful display of fireworks. Be sure to plan a stay at the Mariner Resort during the 4th of July festivities. It is just one of the many great celebrations the Town of Ogunquit has to offer.
