The celebration will kick off Thursday night at 10 with fireworks at the high school on Oak Street. Festivities will continue on the Town Common through the weekend, and will include concerts, a magic show, story readings (including an appearance by Snow White) and the singing contest, which begins Saturday night at 6.

A full schedule is available on the town's web site.
