What better way to celebrate Independence Day than with fireworks and/or a parade?

Ayer

A Fresh Ayer Celebration of Independence! takes place on Saturday, July 1.

The fun starts at 2 p.m. with a parade down Main Street to Pirone Park at 17 School Street. Donnie and Josephine (Phine) Wallace are the grand marshals.

The parade will be followed at Pirone Park with a kids decorated bicycle judging and trophy awarding, food and vendor booths.

The concerts begin at 4 p.m. in park with Front and Center. At 7:30 the Nashoba Valley Concert Band takes the stage.

Fireworks will be at dusk.
