The Air Force Band of Liberty's rock outfit, Afterburner, performed as part of the opening day festivities of Lexington's 300th birthday celebration.
Two questions and Airman Ashley Cook strode out toward the bright blue track and the crowd behind it. They were: "Do you like Adele?" and did anyone want to perform with her. With answers to both firmly in the affirmative, the vocalist for Afterburner, the Air Force Band of Liberty's rock band, launched into Adele's "Rolling in the Deep." A young girl joined her in dancing around the track and the crowd pitched in on the chorus. Afterburner provided the entertainment for the time between the opening ceremonies and all-town photograph on Saturday, Sept. 22, the opening day of a nine-month birthday bash to celebrate Lexington's 300th.
Some photos of the leadup to the Lexington's 300th all-town photo, shot with a fancy camera by Boston Globe photogs hoisted up in a bucket truck.
Between the opening ceremonies and Country Fair, thousands of locals gathered inside the track to take an all-town photograph. As the crowd came together, Lexingtonians young and old were entertained by the Air Force Band of Liberty's rock band, Afterburner. To see the photo in all its interactive glory, check it out on The Globe's website.
