|Greater Andover Days|
Posted Date: 08/24/2015
In October, the City of Andover will have its annual four-day extravaganza, Greater Andover Days. Greater Andover Days has been a tradition in Andover since 1967, and usually draws a crowd of more than 5,000 people. This year it will be themed “GAD to the Bone.”
Greater Andover Days will take place October 1-4. Admission to the festival is by button, which will be available at local retailers and will cost $3. Children five years old and under will be admitted free. Every year, 50 cents of the sale of each button goes to charity. The organization selected to receive this year’s donation is Flinthills Services, Inc. Flinthills Services assists people with disabilities, helping them to live and work independently in the community.
Most of the activities of Greater Andover Days will take place in the Central Park at 1607 E. Central Ave. Events include a tailgate party, a car show, a Saturday night concert, an ice cream social, Kidfest, a fishing clinic, a fun run, turtle races, a craft and business fair and a hot dog eating contest. Last but not least, there will also be fireworks on Saturday night.
