The Sandwich 4th of July celebration is always a special event, but 2017 had some extra magic. It was a truly grand day from start to finish.
The Parade 10am
Field Days (the egg toss is a favorite)
Dale and the Duds at the bandstand on Shawme Pond
The Boat Parade (a 102 year old tradition)
Fireworks over Shawme Pond for the 1st time in 38 years
Nothing beats a New England 4th of July! Nothing!! The sense of history, geography and the significance of past space/time is so palpable….revolutionary! Small town parades are an definitely an experience of there own. It has been a long time since my early days living in Buzzards Bay/Bourne. I faintly recall the Town of Sandwich.
Glad you were able to celebrate there! I remember watching fireworks over the canal near the Bourne Bridge. I need to get back to Maine this year, maybe in the Fall.
The close I got this year was watching Disney’s Johnny Tremain.
Days of Future Past…
