Barre working on bicentennial bash in 2018
BARRE – The town has set a date for a bicentennial celebration at the Barre Town Park. The festivities will be held June 29-30, and July 1.
The activities are being planned by a Bicentennial Committee. Town Clerk Maureen Beach said fund-raising and sponsorships will determine just how big the party will be.
The Town of Barre will officially recognize its 200-year anniversary on March 6, 2018. There will be a recognition ceremony at the Barre Town Hall on that date and an open house with displays.
The bigger celebration will take place June 29 through July 1 primarily at the Barre Town Park. The committee so far is planning on having antique tractors, a car show, food, game booths, a parade, musical groups and other activities, as well as possibly fireworks.
The committee welcomes feedback and assistance in planning the event. The group meets 7 p.m. this Wednesday at the Barre Town Hall.
