The Onset-Wareham Fireworks are our largest event of the year, drawing thousands of locals and visitors alike. The fireworks in Onset harbor have brought families together for generations.  People plan their vacations around them. Kids of all ages anticipate the spectacular light show and big bangs that are guaranteed to delight even the most worldly.

The streets shut down and the streets fill with family and friends reveling in a warm summer night.  Street vendors sell glow lights, horns, big hats and blinky glasses.  Everyone settles into their favorite viewing spot, hearing the faint pops of firecrackers in the distance.  As the sun sets the anticipation grows….for that first woosh….and then that pause before the first firework explodes over the bay.

This is the magic of our fireworks.

We thank every person who contributes $1 or $5,000.  It takes a village to raise the $55,000 needed to make this happen.  This is YOUR Fireworks Celebration.

Donations are always needed.   If we raise more than the $55,000 needed this year, the money will roll over to next year's show.
