243 Years and Counting

 

Where to begin?  It seems that the IT calendar is full of holiday happenings for this year’s Fourth of July.  You can choose to go big with live music, food galore, bustling crowds and spectacular fireworks displays at hot spots such as Knight’s Action Park, Rock the Dock at the marina or at the Levitt AMP Springfield summer music venue downtown.  Or, perhaps you are more interested in something a bit more charming and sedate like Clara Irwin’s Annual Strawberry and Lawn Party at the Iles House where the hostess will be offering shortcakes and sundaes along with a reading of the Declaration of Independence? Throughout the county and beyond, in just about every direction you look, small towns from Chatham to Sherman are offering homegrown varieties of feasts, festivals and fireworks to celebrate the day.   Whatever you decide to do, be sure to choose carefully.  You only get to do this once a year.
