The annual two-town Fourth of July celebration takes place on Friday, July 4, at the Community House of Hamilton.
The event includes a cow pie contest, bike parade and entertainment.
"The celebration is scaled down this year," said Carolyn Blaney, marketing manager at the Community House of Hamilton and Wenham. "There will be the traditional Independence Day Bike Parade, patriotic music at the gazebo and cow pie bingo in Patton Park. Participants in the bike parade should gather at the Methodist Church in Hamilton by 9:45 a.m."
