For as long as I can remember, the fourth of July has always meant one thing- The Wardsboro Parade. Not only was this special day a grand celebration of our independence, but the opportunity to come together as a community. The term quintessential "small town" definitely comes to mind. There are children running through the street in their special red/white/blue outfits, a line a mile long for some of the best freshly squeezed lemonade, the annual quilt show at the church, and lets not forget homemade strawberry shortcake! It is by far one of my fondest childhood memories, and you should definitely stop by and make some great memories of your own! ~Devon, Office Manager This year the street fairstarts on Friday, July 4th at 9:00am, with the parade kicking off at 10am. Arrive early to secure your parking spot! For more information and details please visit https://sites.google.com/site/wardsboroparade/Home.
