      4th of July fireworks displays in the Greater Taunton area and Southeastern Mass

      If you're looking to see some fireworks in the Greater Taunton area/Southeastern Mass this 4th of July, you'll have to get in the car and drive - especially if you're a resident of Taunton. In the Taunton Gazettelast week it was reported that "Taunton will not hold Fourth of July Fireworks, Kiddies Day Carnival this year." In the article, Mayor Hoye was quoted as saying that it was a matter of logistics. Basically, they feel that they don't have an appropriate site to accommodate a fireworks display. I did not attend the 2011 fireworks display in Taunton so I can't speak to what happened last year. Based on the last fireworks display that I did see in Taunton, I'd most certainly agree that logistics were an issue. That year, I stood and watched from across the street from the Silver City Galleria mall. It was awful. We could barely see the fireworks from in between the trees and power lines.When I was a child growing up in Taunton, the fireworks were always held at Taunton High School and there was always a Kiddies Day!

      Happy 4th from Ballow and Hutchinson Realty Group, Inc!
