Manchester’s annual salute to America is a wonderful tradition, complete with stirring music, precision marching bands, imaginative home made floats, antique cars, and just about everything else that represents the pride and patriotism we all share for our country. Simply stated, Manchester’s Fourth of July Celebration is small town America at its very best!  
2022 will will be back to the Traditional Fourth of July that Manchester-By-The-Sea has been used to!  We are excited to bring back all the fun!
