I’m not sure about anyone else but time seems to be flying by as we approach the Fourth of July. The Festival of Arts begins this weekend and fireworks are due to be fired over the harbor in one week!

I decided to look back in my ‘to be published’ folder for images from past Julys and found this shot of the harbor illumination with lit flares around the harbor leading up to the fireworks show. The harbor illumination is my favorite part of the night as it is such a unique Marblehead tradition.
