Fireworks light the night sky What’s the Fourth of July without fireworks? Fireworks burst with patriotism and pride.

After all, John Adams practically decreed in 1776 that the Fourth of July “...ought to be celebrated by pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other...” And who are we 21st century Americans to refute him? Leominster skies will shine a bit earlier than most. Fireworks serve as the conclusion to the annual Starburst festivities, to be held Saturday, June 15 at Doyle Field. The gates will open at 4:30 p.m. and the first event will begin at 5 p.m. Performers include Leominster High School Jazz Band and the All-City Youth Concert Band. The grand finale will be the fireworks extravaganza set to a “Pops” style concert performed by the 40-piece Starburst Band. The band will perform numerous familiar songs including a medley from the James Bond movies

and the Broadway shows, “Oliver!” and “A Chorus Line.” A very special year-long celebration of Millbury’s bicentennial comes to an official end with fireworks. Millbury Lions Club and Millbury Bicentennial Committee co-sponsor the fireworks, to be held July 3 and 4 from 9:30-11 p.m. at Windle Field. Rutland’s July 3 fireworks display will be held at the conclusion of the 7 p.m. concert on the town common, starting at 9:20 p.m. on Memorial Field behind the DPW barn. Worcester’s July 3 fireworks will be held at 9:30 p.m. at Cristoforo Colombo Park (East Park) on Shrewsbury Street, concluding the Massachusetts Symphony Orchestra’s 8-10 p.m. family concert. And for New England’s most spectacular fireworks display, follow the crowds on July 4 to Boston’s Esplanade along the Charles River. The concert

begins at 8:20 p.m., concluding with Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture” at 9:30 p.m. And then one of the country’s most famous fireworks fill the sky with style. Family Fun Day and Fireworks will be held Saturday, June 29 at the Spencer Fairgrounds, with a rain date of Sunday, June 30. Admission and parking are free; gates open at noon. Start the day by attending the firetruck and car show parade at noon starting at David Prouty High School. Kids will love the Touch a Truck

event, where kids get a chance to get behind the wheel and rub elbows with their hometown heroes. Come climb on and explore your favorite vehicles including big rigs, fire engines, police cars, ambulances and construction trucks. Spencer Fire Association will be hosting a chicken barbecue and vendors will be selling traditional fair food. After games and band performances, the day will end with fireworks at 9:30pm.

Play Hooky Every Day 33AlbrightRoadSterlingMA978.422.0275www.sterlingcc.com

Weekday Hooky The best part of playing hooky is the guilty pleasure you get from knowing that everyone else is busy working hard. To make the most of your day out of the cubicle, plan ahead (but keep it to yourself). And as always, if you’re spending your hooky day outside, be sure to wear sunscreen. Sunburn is always a dead giveaway.

Weekend in Southern Worcester County

The fun only ramps up when you take a trip south of Worcester to various attractions that will make summer 2013 complete.

Visit one New Englandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most beloved Indian Ranch, 200 Gore Road, Webster. The outdoor venue brings a number of regional and national favorites to play every summer through their concert series. The 2013 schedule is no different. Performances by Dwight Yoakam, Montgomery Gentry, Three Dog Night, Scotty McCreary, Kenny Rogers, Sara Evans, the Charlie Daniels Band, and more. For those not looking for music, Indian Ranch also has daily, weekly, monthly, and seasonal camping available for RVs, motor homes and park trailers.

The sun will not be much cooler this summer, so stop in at Breezy Picnic Grounds & Waterslides, 520 Northwest Main St., Douglas, and chill. A trio of 300-foot waterslides provide an adrenaline rush. The spacious and

well-maintained park with ample free parking has perfect areas for a picnic, a nearby lake for swimming and nearby snack bar. Another spot to cool off, thanks to the Army Corps of Engineers, is the scenic Buffumville Lake, Charlton. This park has a 300-foot-long beach and enclosed swimming area. Other amenities include a free canoe and boat launch ramp, several reserveable picnic areas, full moon hikes, volleyball courts and horseshoe pits, also available via reservation. Buffumville Dam Tours are available June 16, July 21, and August 4. Water Safety Festival on June 29 at 12:30 p.m. An annual 4th of July Sand Castle contest takes place 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

All parts of the trail are free, however, not all parts connect; some may require that you hoof it on a public road for a while.
