I'm sure you've been hearing this a lot on the radio and internet lately. "LEAVE THE FIREWORKS TO THE PREFESSIONALS!" And they're not wrong as fireworks are highly illegal in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts due to the dangers behind them. Hence why every year we always look forward to watching this spectacular fireworks display which are set off by Noel Field, but are visible from numerous locations throughout North Adams.

Where are the best locations to watch the fireworks?

The First and best place to watch the fireworks in my opinion is if you attend the SteepleCats Baseball game at Joe Wolfe Field that way you have the best seat in the house when the show starts right after the game. Attending the game is highly recommended but for those who can't make it to game, there's many other great locations to view the awesome fireworks display.

By the way, keep scrolling for more event details.

This location right on Curran Highway across the street from South Side Sales & Service is where I grew up watching the fireworks. While you can still view the fireworks with no obstruction, the traffic afterwards however can get pretty hectic. So, be prepared!

Another great location from what people tell me is the American Legion Parking Lot over on American Legion Drive. This location I have yet to try so maybe I'll give it a shot this year!
