The festival’s kickoff ceremony starts at 11:50 a.m. Monday at Downtown Crossing, with a ceremonial cake cutting event.

The multi-day festival began in 1982, and features hundreds of activities to celebrate American independence, honor Boston’s colonial roots and showcase the city’s harbor.

Harborfest will also include historical reenactments, Freedom Trail tours, live entertainment and other activities. The festival runs through July 4.
