Fourth of July events in Brooks
|Jul 04, 2014|
The Brooks Park Boosters plan a full day of exploring how their grandparents and great-grandparents managed their farms, raised their animals, wove their clothing, braided their rugs, turned their fruits into wine, their corn into bread and their milk into ice cream. As part of the town’s 61st annual celebration of Brooks Field Days, now known as Brooks Hay Days, participants will be able to choose among 18 different workshops, demonstrations, and traditional, hands-on farm skills trainings at Brooks Community Park. All are welcome and everyone under 12 gets in free. The cost for teens and adults is $2. The park opens at 11 a.m., right after the 10 a.m. parade through town. The workshops run until 4 p.m. Vendors will supply a variety of festive foods all day. Other events included during Brooks’ Hay Days include a breakfast at 7 a.m. at the Varney Building, a 5-K run at 8 a.m., and a sheep dog show at the park. For more information, contact Kim Jacobs at 722-3139 or Frank Champa at 722-3236.
