FUN & GAMES: The annual Fourth of July Celebration in New Boston this year pays tribute not only to the nation's birthday but the town's 250th anniversary. Thursday's events will include old-fashioned children's games, such as sack races (top) and wheelbarrow races (above) as well as some more contemporary contests, such as mud volleyball (middle).
MARCHING INTO THE PAST: Re-enactors keep in step in a previous Fourth of July parade in New Boston, where annual festivities also include a chicken barbecue, fiddler’s contest, equestrian vaulting demonstration and fireworks.
Families can spend the day, or arrive later to enjoy evening activities, food and fireworks.
