4th of July 20 Jun 2012, 12:30 pmThere will be big doings of the old fashiond kind here this 4th of July. A chicken bar-b-que and craft show on The Boothbay Common and spectacular fireworks over Boothbay Harbor. Walk around the Harbor with an ice cream cone in hand, check out the Arts and Craft Guild on the library lawn, or just sit on a bench and people watch. Hope you can be here because this kind of experience in a small New England town is something everyone should experience.
