Head to Newburyport for the annual celebration of Yankee Homecoming. This week-long celebration features a parade, fireworks, live music, and vendors. Events include a cornhole tournament, a road rally, and an exhibition of artwork from all over New England.

Yankee Homecoming was the creation of artist Jack Frost, who in 1957 proposed a celebration that would invite the Yankees that had emigrated west in the 1800s to return home for a "National Family Reunion.” Newburyport was one of 29 cities to celebrate the inaugural festival.
