Byfield Days set for Sept. 7

BYFIELD — After bad weather forced a postponement of the annual celebration earlier this summer, Byfield Days will be held on Saturday, Sept. 7.

A full schedule of fun programs will run throughout the day. The celebration will begin with a yard sale at 8 a.m. at Community United Methodist Church. At 10 a.m., the kids carnival and food booth will open at the church, as well.

At 1 p.m., the BIG parade kicks off from Knobb Hill and heads back to the center of town. The Cruisin’ Byfield car show, featuring antiques and special interest vehicles, will run from 3 p.m. to dusk. Hot dogs, hamburgers and soft drinks will be available. Ice cream sundaes will be available until 6:30 p.m.

From 4 to 6 p.m., the Merrimack Valley Concert Band will perform at the lawn outside the Byfield Arts Center, with a presentation of “Comedy Goes to the Dogs” beginning at 7:30 p.m. inside the venue. This new event will feature local comedians who will make you laugh out loud. There is a $5 suggested donation with all proceeds being given to Operation Delta Dog, which provides service dogs to returning veterans.

All activities will take place between the Community United Methodist Church and the Byfield Arts Center on Central Street, Byfield.

For more information or to register to participate in the parade, call the Byfield Community Arts Center at 978-463-3335.
