At 5:00pm, Children's Games start on the beach. There will be three-legged, wheel barrow and potato sack races ending with the legendary Tug-of-War!

End the day with the best fireworks display on Nantucket. Fireworks will be shot from a barge just offshore and will last about 25-27 minutes. Transportation on the NRTA Wave buses to the beach will begin at 6:00m from the Whaling Museum every 20 minutes to the corner of Bathing Beach Road and Hulbert Avenue and will return to the Whaling Museum after the show.
