Wednesday, July 4, 9 a.m.—KILLINGTON—Held annually, the Town of Killington celebrates the Fourth of July with a day of activities on businesses along River Road.
At 9 a.m., the Friends of the Library will holds a book and gift sale at Sherburne Memorial Library, through 12 noon. The parade starts at 100 a.m., beginning at Fusion Fitness and ending at the Johnson Rec Center. The pool is open for swimming at 11 a.m., which will surely be a popular place to be this year with the heat wave that’s been ongoing.
Shortly after, the fireman’s barbecue will begin at 11:30 a.m. The raffle goes from 12-3 p.m., and tickets are available at killingtonrec.com.
Fun for all ages, the field games begin at 1 p.m. For those who are looking for a red belly, the Belly Flop Contest will take place at 3:30 p.m. at the pool.
Live music and entertainment will start at 7 p.m., followed by fireworks at 9:30 p.m.
Rain date is July 5.
