Ice Cream & Music
One of the nicest things about small-town living is summer holiday celebrations that bring folks together especially when they include patriotic music and ice cream.
Last night we attended what has become an annual event in the neighboring town of Onancock in the past few — an old-fashioned Ice Cream Social and Band Concert that’s held outdoors on the town square, always on July 3.
Folks bring lawn chairs, blankets and many picnic before and during the concert. There’s a Kids Painting area where budding artists can create and then take home their artwork.
This event is sponsored by members of the Onancock Business & Civic Association, which provides and scoops the free ice cream and seconds are always encouraged. Music is provided by the volunteer CommUnity Band.
Tomorrow, July 4th, is the annual non-motorized holiday parade and the Firecracker Book Sale at the county library. We’re helping out at the sale, watching the parade, then going to a friend’s home later.
How are you spending the holiday?
