The town of Orange is celebrating its 190th birthday this year with a bang.
The big occasion will be combined with the annual Fourth of July celebration on the Orange Fairgrounds, 525 Orange Center Road, with a spectacular display by Zambelli Fireworks.
Make an evening of it with your family and friends, lay out your blankets and set up a grill. Get ready for a memorable community event.
Action Enterprises will be selling balloons, lighted novelty items, cotton candy and popcorn.
