The event starts on Aug. 16 with the fireman’s parade and will conclude on Aug. 24 with a grand parade complete with floats and marching bands. The theme is “275 Years of Neighbors Helping Neighbors.”
Vendor tables are also free but vendor donations are welcomed.
Each evening there will be events and music at Whiting Hill Park and the weekend events will run throughout the day.
Some of the favorite events include the fireman’s muster, the police vs. fire softball game and the disc golf tournament, which is named after Bob Mackintosh, who was a big supporter of the Wilton-Lyndeborough High School softball team.
