Illuminate the Harbor Fireworks Celebration

Fireworks | Amesbury, MA

Although the Fourth of July is known for its spectacular fireworks displays, the end of summer deserves its own celebration. Entering its seventh year, the annual Illuminate the Harbor Fireworks Celebration will take place on the Thursday before Labor Day Weekend (Thursday, Aug. 29, 2019) between 8:30-9 p.m., marking a close to the summer months. This WBOP Gathering will celebrate our community, love, and the end of summer with a breathtaking, family-friendly fireworks display at the Boston Harbor.

The Illuminate the Harbor celebration believes that Boston’s waterfront and Harbor belong to the Boston community and celebrates the array of individuals, communities, and public resources that support the waterfront. To show your support for love and connectedness, donate to the celebration here.

The Illuminate the Harbor fireworks display will feature fireworks set off from two barges in Boston Harbor located between Long Wharf and Seaport. The display can be viewed from anywhere along Boston’s waterfront, but several locations along the Boston Harborwalk are recommended. The recommended locations are Christopher Columbus Park, North End; Piers Park, East Boston; and Fan Pier, Seaport District. Before the celebration, you can kick off Labor Day Weekend right with some local grub, supporting local businesses along the Harbor.

We here at Amesbury Chevrolet hope to see you at this year’s Illuminate the Harbor event. Until then, feel free to stop by to test-drive a shiny new 2019 Blazer or Silverado 1500.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

 

About one in eight women will develop breast cancer over the course of their lifetime. An estimated 266,000 new cases will be diagnosed in 2018 alone. Fortunately, U.S. residents have banded together to help find a cure. Here are two ways you can help Amesbury Chevrolet contribute to this cause.

 

Making Strides

 

The American Cancer Society has been organizing non-competitive “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” walks to raise awareness of breast cancer and raise funds to find a cure. These events occur nationwide, and participating in one is a great way to lend a helping hand and spread education about the severity of the disease. Every cent towards the American Cancer Society brings the organization one step closer toward eradicating breast cancer.

 

Chevy Raffles

 

Amesbury Chevy is proud to fulfill its duty to help fight cancer. The Annual Amesbury Chevy Classic Car Show brings people together to peruse an awesome selection of classic Chevrolets. All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society. Raffle prizes include free car services, gift cards, and more.

Spring Activities with Your Chevy Silverado

Chevrolet Silverado spring activities

Spring is a magnificent time of year. The natural world is in bloom, temperatures are warming up, and you have a million things you need to do, like gardening, repairing your house, and building that new swingset. Get these jobs done in a snap with your Chevrolet Silverado.

A fresh layer of mulch can really bring your front garden back to life. Depending on the trim level and engine, the Silverado has a maximum payload rating of up to 2,250 pounds, and that’s a lot of mulch. Imagine how much easier this job will be when you can load everything right into the bed of your Silverado.

But, the Silverado isn’t all work. You can have fun, too. Want to go on a spring bike ride along the coast? Load up the whole family’s collection of bikes into your bed, and be on the road faster. You won’t have to deal with removing the front tires or feeling like they might fall off the roof while you’re driving. If your weekend fun involves some bigger toys, like a boat, the Silverado can tow up to 12,500 pounds.

All of these activities with your Chevy Silverado, whether working or playing, will be easier than ever. Come see what else the Silverado can accomplish today at Amesbury Chevrolet.
