The Needham Exchange Club is planning a special 4thof July celebration this year in honor of our nations’ birthday.
The Fireworks have been promised to be better than ever and our Grand Parade will feature special guests and new musical groups. The Fireworks will be at Memorial Park on Wednesday evening, July 3rd. The evening will begin with food, ponyrides, face painting and other family entertainment followed by Fireworks. The Grand Parade will start at 9 am on Thursday, July 4th. After the Parade on Thursday there will be more food, a flea market, an old fashioned baseball game, children’s games and much more. Plan to stay in
Needham for this great 4thof July tradition!
We will be providing more details on this website as we get closer to the event. We also have a Facebook page “Needham Exchange Club 2013 4th of July Celebration” with details on the event. Please check out our 2012 Business Sponsorslisted below.
