Parade Details

At noon on Monday, September 3, 2012 the town will be holding the 51st Annual Labor Day Parade. 

It is important to note that the parade will start at 12:00 p.m. this year. According to Beth Caldwell, the change in start time is due to last year’s weather related postponement to Sunday.  “We got such an overwhelmingly positive response from parade participants and organizers that we decided to try for noon this year,” she said.

The Second Annual “Labor Day Fair” will be held on the front lawn of the Middle School from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Early risers can start the day with a breakfast sandwich, snack and a tour of local vendors’ wares and the Girl Scouts’ tag sale.
