Hull marks Independence Day with a trio of events

There are three events worth your time today:

HAMPTON CIRCLE PARADE. The whole town is welcome to don red, white, and blue and head to Hampton Circle for a neighborhood “parade” that features face-painting for kids, lots of flag bearing, raising, and waving, and picture-perfect small-town patriotism. Face painting begins at 9, the march around Hampton Circle begins at 10 a.m. The annual group photo will be taken just prior to the parade. [Don’t forget your flags.] 

SAY HULL-O TO THE TROLLEY. Join the Hull Nantasket Chamber of Commerce and local dignitaries as they inaugurate trolley service along the peninsula that will run from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekends this summer. The trolley debuts at 12:15 p.m. in front of the Bernie King Pavilion at Nantasket Beach. Don't leave afterwards, because the Bernie King is also the venue for the...

INDEPENDENCE DAY CONCERT. It’s a Hull tradition for Four Guys in Tuxes to perform the kickoff and season finale concerts at the bandstand on Nantasket Beach. The Independence Day concert begins at 2 p.m. This free event is part of the Leonard Hersch Memorial Band Concert Series and is sponsored by the town of Hull, the state Dept. of Conservation and Recreation, local merchants, and private donations. To make a contribution, send a check payable to the Town of Hull/Band Concerts to Town Hall, 253 Atlantic Ave., Hull, MA 02045. 

So, sally forth and have a Happy 4th!
