We’re starting the day with a Continental breakfast at Livingston Park (behind the Youth Center) from 8:30 – 10:00 AM provided by the Friends of the Tewksbury Patriotic Activities Committee. Following breakfast, we will have Track & Field Games for all ages. These will run from 10:00 AM – 12 PM.
Starting at 12 PM, there will be a free hot dog lunch (including ice cream) for Tewksbury Residents courtesy of the Tewksbury/Wilmington Elks. The Tewksbury Knights of Columbus will provide complimentary soft drinks. The lunch runs from 12 – 12:30 PM, or until we run out of food, whichever comes first!
At 12:30 PM there will be a Decorated Doll Carriage Contest open to children ages 3 to 6. At 12:45 PM, there will be a Bicycle Decoration Contest open to children ages 4 to 8. And at 1 PM we will have the Little Mr. & Miss Tewksbury Contest for children ages 2 to 4 (Tewksbury residents ONLY).
Also happening at 1 PM will be the Basketball Free Throw Contest. Show off your skills for a chance to win excellent prizes! And be sure to save your appetite because there will be a Pie Eating Contest and a Watermelon Eating Contest at 1:30 PM!
From 6 PM – 9 PM, there will be free face painting sponsored by Family Treasure Chest Resale. Then at 7 PM there will be a Pre-Fireworks Concert featuring Tewksbury’s own Beachbreakers. They’ll be playing classic hits from bands like The Beach Boys, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Jimmy Buffet, The Beatles, Elvis Presley and many more. Tewksbury Applebee's will also be providing free hot appetizers during the show. All of this leads up to our fantastic Fireworks display at 9:30 PM.
The Friends of the Tewksbury Patriotic Activities Committee would like to take this opportunity that thank the residents and businesses in Tewksbury who’ve helped support us in our efforts to bring you an amazing Fourth of July, as well as our other events throughout the year. These events would not be possible without the generous contributions of people like you. So thank you, Tewksbury!
