Sandwich festival goes on despite transition
SANDWICH – Although the dry weather postponed Sandwich’s Fourth of July fireworks show, the city still hosted its annual holiday festivities Saturday and Sunday.
What was formerly known as Freedom Days, an annual Fourth of July festival held for at least the past 20 years, was a little different this year, said Sue Swithin, director of the Sandwich Park District. The committee that organizes the celebration decided not to put the festival together this year because of a lack of volunteers, so the park district took over.
“After years of doing it, there were not a lot of volunteers, and they got kind of burned out,” she said. “It will probably stay within the park district’s hands.”
