      The Best 4th of July Fireworks on the Cape?

      Without a doubt, one of the best annual fireworks displays is the one held at SESUIT HARBOR in East Dennis. Instituted in 2002 as a collaborative effort of the Dennis Yacht Club and Northside Marina, this year's event will take place on THURSDAY, JULY 2 AT ABOUT 9:00 P.M.  Viewing can be tricky as the Marina is located in the residential neighborhood of Sesuit Neck.  Parking at the Dennis Yacht Club is strictly for members only (must have a sticker). Ditto the parking lot at the Marina which fills up fast as it is restricted to the Marina's boat owners and the fire department closes off part of it. On-street parking is going to be your best bet, and some additional parking at Harborview Beach which is a spectacular viewing site - IF you can get there very early.  Looking for your own 4th of July fireworks viewing site for your family and friends?  Take a look at these two nearby waterfront properties for sale, both of which would provide exceptional fireworks viewing for years to come! 12 Maureens Way and 177 Sea Street.

      Happy Fourth of July 2009!

      1. Mr Japanese on

        One thing I've had to think about recently is to remember to refrain from excluding audiences and markets. There are some audiences on facebook, e.g. the Japanese or Korean, with plenty of users. Sure, there are roadblocks where admins do not communicate in their fan's language. But think about this: just one part-time translator could build an extra 100,000 followers. Isn't that worth it?
