4th of July Weekend Guide

The Ultimate Guide for Celebrating the 4th of July Weekend, Lowell Style.

Looking to make this year’s 4th of July celebration extra special?  Lucky for you, 4th of July in Lowell has enough excitement and Independence Day spirit to keep you and your family entertained.  Whether you’ve lived in Lowell for years, or are new to Lowell and are looking to spice things up, here is our ultimate guide to help make your 4th of July weekend unforgettable.


1. Satisfy your summer cravings

What better way to kick off the festive weekend than fueling up with some good old burgers and fries.  Summertime is the best time to spend outdoors with family and friends, enjoying good food and good laughs.  If you’re looking for the perfect excuse to leave grilling behind this year you should hit up a local restaurant for that burger instead. We hear that Lowell Beer Works, Worthen House Café, Charlies Pub and The Old Court serve some of the best burgers in town.   


2. Treat yourself, its summer!

After feasting on hot dogs and hamburgers, head over to Heritage Farm Ice Cream and Restaurant for some refreshing ice cream.  Aside from a delicious treat, they offer free family entertainment across the street at the Sampas Pavilion Stage.  Every Monday Night the restaurant sponsors a free concert, featuring the hottest bands from the local area, along with a Classic Car Show in their parking lot.  Nothing beats listening to music, hanging with family and friends and eating ice cream along the breathtaking river.  Who knows, maybe you will see some fireworks across the river this weekend!


3. Enjoy music, free give-a-ways, kid’s activities, fireworks and more at Lelacheur Park!

The Lowell Spinners at Lelacheur Park are hosting Lowell’s grand 4th of July Independence Day Celebration and Fireworks on July 4. The ball park is open to the public and the admission is FREE!  The park opens at 6pm and the first 1,500 attendees receive American flags.  Not only does the city of Lowell have a fantastic display of fireworks starting at 9pm, but attendees can enjoy a live band, play in the Swampland Kids area, as well as get the chance to potentially catch a free t-shirt.  In addition to 5,000 stadium seats, Lelacheur Park opens up its outfield, so be sure to bring a blanket as no chairs are allowed.
