Other Important Notes about July 4th

Please be aware of these several other important facts about July 4th:

  • Please DO NOT place chairs or other items on the sidewalks prior to the parade to save viewing spots. Doing so makes it difficult for people to walk on the sidewalks, especially those with mobility challenges. Place your chairs on grass to reserve your favorite parade viewing location.
  • Town offices will be closed on July 4th. The trash Convenience Center will be open on the 4th.
