Old Fashioned 4th of July Celebration is Tonight
Event at the Lexington Depot features readings and ice cream.
It wouldn't be a proper Independence Day celebration in Lexington, some would say, without a celebration of July 4 harkening back to the days of our forefathers.
Join the Lexington Historical Society today at 7 p.m. for an "Old-Fashioned 4th of July" at the Lexington Depot, as it returns to 1776 to celebrate the holiday with readings conducted by costumed residents.
The Lexington Declaration, by Levi Mead, will be read by Sam Doran; the Declaration of Independence, by Rev. Jonas Clarke, will be read by Rev. Dr. Peter Meek; and the British Response, by Major John Pitcairn, will be read by Paul O'Shaughnessy.
A special performance by the Lexington Historical Society Colonial Singers is also scheduled, and an ice cream social will be held, featuring Rancatore's ice cream available for $2 a cup.
