Falmouth’s Fourth of July festivities are unlike any other. The day will begin with a recitation of the Declaration of Independence outside the bookstore, and end with what Travel and Leisure Magazine named one of the top ten fireworks displays in the country. From start to finish, July 4th is one of the best days to be in Falmouth.

Embrace your patriotic side and don your flag themed garments at the bike and carriage parade which begins at 10am at the village green. In addition to outfits, participants are invited to deck out their bike, wagon, scooter, or carriage in red white and blue and follow Uncle Sam down Main Street. The parade culminates at Peg Noonan Park where awards are given to parade participants. Main Street has plenty of al fresco dining so you can also opt to watch the parade from the comfort of a cocktail.

When dusk falls, the Falmouth skyline will explode with color in a truly impressive fireworks display. More than 50,000 people will travel to Falmouth to watch the show, which originates from Falmouth Heights Beach but can be seen throughout the town. The Fourth of July is a day to celebrate and honor our country and what better place than Massachusetts – the place where it all began.

Cape Cod birding is best in Falmouth

Did you know that Falmouth, with all it’s open space, forests, beaches, marshland and cranberry bogs, is known  as one of the best places for Atlantic coastline birding?

Yes, you will find the Merlin, the Sanderling, the Cooper’s Hawk and the Warbler all hiding in the rushes here in Falmouth in various seasons.  And if you love spotting the dramatic Osprey, the huge hawk that likely gave “Buzzards Bay” it’s name, you will find them nesting all over the place in summer here, and delight in watching their enormous wing span, wild twig-ridden nests, and fishing prowess.  Osprey migrate from here to the Amazon in winter, but return to this area for nesting and hatching their young.  Osprey were threatened by the use of DDT, a chemical that was sprayed in the 1950s and 60s to keep mosquitoes down, with the unintended effect of killing bird populations including the Osprey.  Since it was banned, they have come back to our area.

Craig Gibson is a Falmouth resident and passionate bird photographer.  Up at dawn with his long lenses and a sea kayak, Craig hunts the bird life deep in the marshes, and on the small barrier islands and sand dunes where they nest and breed.  His collection of photos “A Year of Falmouth Birds” will take your breath away.  Copies are available for sale in local book shops, and benefit the 300 Committee Land Trust, our local conservation group.

Of course birders will be familiar with the Great Blue Heron, or the Snowy Egret, but for first time visitors to our area, these extraordinary birds will impress and awe you.  Come to Falmouth to learn more!
