We have some exciting news: our friend Mark Forziati has volunteered to design and produce a cycle jersey as a fundraiser for the Marblehead fireworks!
Jeff Folger has provided one of his photos for the project free of charge and all profits from the sale are going straight into the fireworks fund. The jersey will be available this spring for $100 at select locations in town. To better gauge interest and determine the quantities we want to produce, please respond via comments if you would be interested in buying one and specify the size. Thank you! Please help spread the word…
And a big Thank You from the Fireworks Committee to Mark and Jeff!

Coastal Living Magazine awarded Marblehead a prestigious spot among the Top 10 coastal places to celebrate the Fourth of July for several years in a row. In 2011 Marblehead came in #5 (up 2 spots from 2010) and is still ranked as the best place on the entire East Coast and the only place in New England to make the list!
Boston.com nicely sums it up, too: “Want the best fireworks? Head to Marblehead“. We couldn’t have said it any better…
