If you have never experienced a 4th of July fireworks celebration by the ocean, you are in for a treat.
Short Sands Beach in York Beach, Maine, serves as a wonderful example of this traditional New England coastal event. The roar of the ocean and colors lighting up the expansive sky combine to create a magic that can only be seen and heard in person to be fully appreciated.
Add a community band playing by the gazebo before the show, a sea salt taste in the air, the hot summer sand turning cooler under your feet as the temperature drops, and rocky coast surrounding the beach further enhances this special night out. It only helps matter, too, that Short Sands Beach is one of Maine's nicest ocean beaches -- small and intimate yet spirited and family-oriented.
Fireworks to begin at Short Sands Beach while the moon makes its first appearance.
