If you need something to do between 5 and 6 p.m. when the village is closed, there’s a buffet from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at the Oliver Wright Tavern. Day and night activities include fife and drum music, militia marching, and readings of the Declaration of Independence. You can also march in a citizens parade. July 4 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m., 6-10 p.m. Daytime admission is $20, $18 seniors, $7 ages 3-17; $12 for evening entertainment and fireworks (free under 3; fireworks rain date July 5).
