Townsend Parade & Fair – 9/24/16

Date Posted: Monday, September 19th, 2016

The Annual Townsend Parade & Fair will be held on Saturday, September 24, 2016.  Because there will be a number of large vehicles and floats in the parade, the Town is asking residents – if at all possible – to keep vehicles off Brook Ramble Road, Main Street, and Edgar Road (to just beyond the municipal park) until the parade concludes at about 11 am.  This will help maintain traffic flow out of Townsend Station during the parade line-up and assist floats in maneuvering through the parade route.  Thank you – and hoping you will join in the festivities on Saturday.  For more information about the fair, click here:    Fair Flyer
