The fes- tivities start with the Firecracker 5K kicking off the weekend at 8 a.m. This is a fun run and/or walk event for people of all ages. While many have already pre-registered for the event, onsite registration will be held at Festival Halle on Friday, July 1, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. and Saturday morning from 6:45 to 7:45 a.m. After the conclusion of the race, the focus will move to the Reedville Fishermen's Museum and Bethany Methodist Church. A full slate of children's activi- ties will start at 10 a.m. and run until noon. Activities include building your own toy sailboat, a pie eating contest, sack races, egg toss, hula hoops, tattoos and face painting. Then at Noon, the always popular Firetruck Hose Down will take place behind the Bethany Church. An added bonus this year is the museum's model train exhibit which will be running from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. A large bake sale will also be taking place inside the Bethany Church. DJ Russ Bertino will be playing music at the community gazebo, next to the church from 1-4 p.m. The big Independence Day Pa- rade starts at 3 p.m. and is always filled with a wide variety of in- teresting floats and participants. The parade travels the length of Main Street, which is lined with waving United States Flags from each telephone pole, and turns at the Crazy Crab and heads back up the other side. All of these ac- tivities lead up to the always im- pressive fireworks display which starts shortly after nightfall, about 9 p.m. The fireworks launch from the historic stack at Omega Pro- tein and lights up most areas around Cockrelrs Creek. Make sure to get here early to find the perfect spot for viewing. However, the fireworks don't mean.&l giyelebration is pv,er yet!, On:Sunday, July 3, the Reed- ville Festival Chorale will host a concert of Patriot Music at Fes- tival Halle. This very popular annual tradition begins at 3 pm. Everybody is invited to sing along and have a good time. So plan on visiting Reedville over the July 4th holiday and join in on the festivities.
