What better way to celebrate Sandy Beach’s 100-year birthday than with fireworks! Sandy Beach Association is planning a spectacular Centennial Firework event and Clambake on July 22nd. They have hired Atlas Fireworks to put on a professional firework display. This is the first time Sandy Beach has hosted fireworks and is only fitting for its Centennial milestone. The fireworks will be launched from a barge in front of Sandy Beach at dark (around 9 pm) on Saturday, July 22nd. The public is invited to watch the fireworks from Sandy Beach or many of the other vantage points around town. Join other Cohasset residents in celebrating the Centennial year of Sandy Beach. “Niteschool”, featuring drummer Peter Lindfors, will provide live music beginning at 6 pm. There will be glow-in-the-dark and fun souvenirs for sale at Sandy Beach along with ice cream sandwiches and bottles of water. Doug Eymer of Eymer Brand Laboratories has designed an updated logo for Sandy Beach along with a commemorative 100th Birthday logo. T-Shirts and hats will go on sale beginning this weekend and at the event, and may be purchased from the bathhouse. Join in the fun and gather with friends and neighbors to celebrate this once in a lifetime Centennial Event.
Free for Cohasset Residents
The firework display is free for all Cohasset residents to enjoy and the beach and parking lot will remain open as usual during the weekend of the event. Parking will be available at Sandy Beach for vehicles with valid Cohasset All Facility Stickers and spaces will fill up on a first come basis. Sandy Beach Association will be providing buses to shuttle residents from Cohasset High School to the Beach beginning at 6 pm and continuing through 10 pm. For those who do not wish to come down to the beach, representatives of Atlas Fireworks have determined that the display will be visible from points along the shoreline, at the harbor, and from high elevations in town.
Traffic + Parking
Sandy Beach Association has been working with Cohasset Police, Fire, Harbormaster, and the Coast Guard to ensure a fun and safe event. There will be some traffic restrictions along Atlantic Avenue in front of Sandy Beach to help with traffic flow. Atlantic Avenue will flow in a One Way Northern Direction between Beach Street and Jerusalem Road between 7:30 pm and 10:00 pm. Nichols Road will be closed except to local residents. The Association anticipates that the parking lot will fill up quickly and asks residents to consider other means of transportation to the beach or to seek alternative viewing areas for the fireworks. There will be designated passenger drop off areas at the Northern End of the beach (by Nichols Road). To maintain safety and due to a lack of parking pizza delivery, commercial or vendor vehicles will not be allowed into the Sandy Beach parking lot from 6:00-10:00 pm. All vehicles entering the parking lot will need valid Cohasset All Facility Stickers and must park in designated, available parking spaces only. There will also be parking restrictions along access roads leading to Sandy Beach.
