Bedford Day is coming up next Saturday, Sept. 23! The day kicks off with a 5K race and then there is the parade, fair, the official opening of the Bedford Historical Society Museum and Friends of the Bedford Library Book Sale. Bedford Day caps off with fireworks!
Our research shows that this may be the 59th town day celebration in Bedford – or maybe it’s the 56th with a few big birthdays sprinkled on top. (Read a little about Bedford Day’s history in a 2017 Bedford Explained: https://thebedfordcitizen.org/2017/09/bedford-explained-bedford-day-start/)
From the days of Miss Bedford, the Jaycees Ball, and kids bringing home baggies with live goldfish to the continued traditions of the road race, dunk tank (visit the BHS Class of 2024 booth this year!), and food, Bedford Day lends itself to great memories.
