The Andover Fourth of July Committee has been meeting each month, preparing for the arrival of Tuesday, July 4, 2023. This year the Village Green will be bustling with vendors selling a variety of items, and there will be plenty of food and drinks.

Leapin’ Lena made her appearance once again in the 2022 parade.

There has been a lot of behind-the-scenes work finding a few food trucks to offer even more food options. This year, we are able to, once again, offer several inflatables on the Green during the day and at Carr Field in the evening. 

Let’s not forget about the parade! Donna Smith works tirelessly to organize the best parade in the state. This year the theme is “Red, White, and Blue,” leaving room for creativity and millions of float possibilities.

There is a raffle headed by Betty Adams and Judy Perreault that promises amazing items. Tickets can be purchased at the annual Town Meeting and on the Fourth of July at the committee table. 

Finally, mark your calendars for Thursday, June 8 at 5 PM. There will be a benefit concert that will have your toes tapping and fingers snapping!
