Independence Day Water Fight on Main Street

Independence Day | Nantucket, MA
July 4, 2019 @ 12:00 pm
Main Street

The water fight between Town of Nantucket’s Fire Department and the Boynton Lane Reserves at high NOON.

Again this year, the Department of Culture and Tourism and the Town of Nantucket are asking those individuals who would like to participate in the water fight to LEAVE WATER BALLOONS at home. Shards from the water balloons litter the cobblestone streetscape and enter the harbor. Last year, volunteers and DPW staff logged in many hours to clean up balloon shards over two days. Once the shards are in the harbor, they are consumed by aquatic life. Like you, we prefer our seafood without a “side of balloon.” Thank you for leaving the water balloons at home.
