FIREWORKS ARE ON!

In case of rain …

CLICK HERE FOR SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

We are receiving questions about Saturday’s weather. Right now chance of rain is 30% so we think we’ll be fine.

Regardless of the weather, Old Hallowell Day will be held on Saturday. If the weather is predicted to be bad or visibility poor on Saturday night, the fireworks will be postponed to Sunday at 9pm. Watch www.oldhallowellday.org or our Facebook page for any updates on the fireworks. All other events will be held as planned, except that the Super Fun in Motion Kids events from 11am to 1pm will be moved from the Vaughan Field to the auditorium on the second floor at Hallowell City Hall at 1 Winthrop Street.

If the weather is poor on Saturday, we understand that people may choose not to attend. We are unable to postpone the whole day because of the complexity of scheduling so many participants and the need for Hallowell Police and Public Works coverage

Hey, it’s summer in Maine! What’s a little warm summer rain among friends! Throw on a slicker and head to Hallowell.
