Happy Fourth! Town celebrates Independence Day

Marblehead is celebrating this Independence Day with model boats, art exhibits, live concerts and, of course, the traditional harbor illumination and fireworks display.

The soggy weather isn’t keeping families away from the Arts Festival, now in its fourth and final day. Here’s a quick look at what’s on tap for the Festival today:
