Weirs Action Committee is making history this year by celebrating Independence Day the very moment it comes around: 12:01 a.m.! Gather your family and friends at Weirs Beach to ring in this year's Fourth of July with a stunning display of fireworks. For those who'd rather be snoozing by midnight, additional fireworks shows will be held on Friday night at 10:00 p.m. from the shores of Endicott Park at Weirs Beach. You could even take the family on a fireworks cruise- the view from a boat in Weirs Bay is especially lovely, with the fireworks exploding almost directly overhead.  Come enjoy the lively festivities and commemorate America's birthday on a gorgeous sandy lakefront beach at the annual event sponsored by Weirs Action Committee. Come down for an exciting afternoon on the boardwalk and finish the night off by watching the spectacular array of the Weirs Beach fireworks!

Crafts at Cate Park

Ready to use your imagination, let your creativity come to life, and build a fairy house? Yep, that's right: Build a fairy house! Have a blast with the kids at the fourth annual Fairy House-Building event from Wolfeboro Area Children's Center. Located in Wolfeboro's Cate Park from 10 am to 2 pm on July 5th, put your crafting skills to the test with your Lakes Region neighbors. All supplies used must be natural (materials found in nature), so it's a great way to get the kids outside, collecting pebbles, twigs, leaves, grass... all kinds of things to make your fairy house unique.
