4th of July Celebration at the Town Grove
Families and friends gather to observe and celebrate Independence Day at Lake Wononscopomuc (Lakeville Lake). Bring a picnic, take a dip in the lake, or sit in the shade of magnificent oak trees as the Salisbury Band plays patriotic and well-known tunes.
Heman Allen, 1740 – 1778, (aka our own Lou Bucceri in period attire) makes an appearance each year and reads the Declaration of Independence.
