Get ready for fun and fellowship on the Lyme Common, Saturday, July 1st!
We’re ready to celebrate Independence Day with a pig roast, a parade, and a country dance party!
Those Guys will start off the day with a COMMUNITY BREAKFAST at the Congregational Church from 8:00am – 10:00am. The afternoon fun starts around 1:00pm with new and old-fashioned games for kids of all ages. A DUNK TANK will give kids an opportunity to test their ball-throwing skills while the LYME TOWN BAND plays music starting around 2:30. And again this year, the BILL ACKERLY MEMORIAL ICE CREAM GIVEAWAY!
At 4:00pm a PARADE will set off around the Common. Shine up your classic vehicle and line up along Market Street starting around 3:30 to participate. Right after the parade, a PATRIOTIC SING-ALONG AND RECITATIONS hosted by Bill Murphy will put us all in the spirit of celebrating our democracy. Jeff Snelling will have prepared the PIG ROAST all afternoon so that dinner can start at 5:30. Baked beans and salads, ice tea and lemonade. A GRAND SUMMER PICNIC including gluten free options! Adults $8.00, kids 4-10 $5.00, and those under 4 eat whatever they eat for free.
And this year holds the special treat of a COUNTRY DANCE PARTY with caller David Millstone and local musicians Maia Rutman and Dan Freihofer. Come as you are for a contradance-style program that is sure to be fun for all.
Don’t miss this fun for all ages!
