Planning Begins for Andover’s Fourth of July Celebration 2020

It may be cold outside, but a lot of preparation is needed

Press release

Sitting next to the wood stove is almost as good as a 90 plus degree Fourth of July! But of course, it’s a far cry from the excitement we all experienced in 2019.

As with every year, the Fourth of July Committee is putting together the events for 2020 and some good ideas have come to the surface already.

The July Fourth Benefit Concert will happen again in 2020 on Wednesday, June 10. The line-up for entertainment is still in the works and will be announced as soon as possible.

We’ve made arrangements with a local Civil War Re-enactment group to set up a display on the Green. Bring your questions as two people in uniform will be available to provide insight and information about America’s most costly war.

Back by popular demand:
  Oxen demonstration spearheaded by Mariah Haley
  Muchachos Marching Band
  Bob Ayotte with Tommy the Train Ride
  Reading of the “Ragged Old Flag” to music, leading up to the parade

Start making your plans for a family float. Remember, there’s a Grand Prize for the winner, as well as other prizes.

There’s a lot of preparation work to do. The committee welcomes people who can help with the planning and also just on the day of the event. Simply message us on our Facebook page or give us a call: Doug Phelps (802-310-1045); Donna Smith (735-6131); or Beth Frost (455-2882).
