NEW BEDFORD, Mass. (WPRI) — A large fireworks display lit up the New Bedford skyline Thursday night as the city celebrated the Fourth of July.

The fireworks were set off on a barge positioned at the end of the State Pier in the Port of New Bedford.

On Wednesday night, Eyewitness News live-streamed McCoy Stadium’s Fourth of July fireworks display that followed the Pawtucket Red Sox’s game against the Scranton Wilkes-Barre RailRaiders.
