WARDBORO- Vermont’s longest-running Fourthth of July celebration will again take over Wardsboro’s Main Street on Thursday, July 4. The little street fair started by ladies from the Methodist Church 64 years ago to raise funds to pay the pastor has now become a fundraiser for the fire department, the Gloria Danforth Memorial Library and the Friends of the library, as well as the church. It fills the street with about 50 crafters and vendors, a quilt show in the church, strawberry shortcake in the vestry, chicken barbecue on the town hall lawn, art show in the library barn, a fine display in the History House, an unusual eclectic parade, hamburger/pulled pork sandwich booth, street musicians, white elephant sale full of treasures, dozens and dozens of homemade pies, a bake shop, and coffee and donuts in the town hall, children’s games, and the Grafton Band will be in the parade, as it has for the past 64 years.

New this year, a duck race sponsored by the library and a trapeze act by New England Center for Circus Arts. Visit swww.wardsboroparade.com. Call (802) 896-6141 or email nanperkins@hotmail.com for details.
