As always, we will have countless ways to enjoy the day! This year, we are proud to announce the Fairfax, Fletcher, Westford (FFW) Band will kick things off in the park immediately following the parade.  Thanks to our friends at Milton Rental & Sales, we will have the bouncy castle set up for kids up to age 13.  A one time donation of $1 to the Parks & Rec. Department gets you access to the bouncy castle for the entire event.  We will also have several games and craft stations set up for folks of all ages to enjoy.
