Experienced Independence Day revelers began marking their spaces on the Orange Fairgrounds around noon today in anticipation of a phenomenal musical show and the traditional 4th of July Fireworks.

Food vendors will be in place as early as 5:30 pm.

Vendors include: Chip’s Pancake Truck; Reno’s Pizza Truck; Shoreline Prime Meats & Deli Truck; Spuds Your Way; Cappetta’s Italian Imports; Lemonade Grenade; Szabo’s Seafood; Rita’s Italian Ice; JP Kettle Corn; Action Enterprises

Food trucks open at 6 p.m., Band at 6:30, fireworks at 9:30

A reminder that NO open flames, propane containers, individual fireworks or sparklers are permitted.

While on the fairgrounds, be aware of safety zones (marked in white) and follow the guidance of Orange CERT members. Show courtesy to you fellow residents & make use of clearly marked trash & recycling containers. Parents, please watch your children.

Please enter and leave the fairgrounds with caution and observe directional signs and Police instructions at all times. Stay clear of the “fire line” and the wooded area near the fireworks pit for your own safety.

Be patient at the conclusion of the show as traffic may be stopped while the fireworks people make sure each and every explosive has been blasted.

This is for YOUR safety, so do not give the CERT members or firefighters a hard time. They are not just being “yahoos” they are trained in safety measures and are doing their jobs to make sure you and your family do not get hurt.

Correction from our original post: The OPD Did, in fact send us the press release at the same time everyone else received it. It was sent to an alternate e-mail address and we simply missed it. Our apologies to Head Clerk Gary C for stating that it was not sent to us.

Whether You’re Taking A Detour or Just Cruising Around Remember Children Are Everywhere

As you may already know, the Derby-Milford Road Construction project has begun and will continue for several months (til the end of the year).

Prudden Lane is one of the approved detour roadways and drivers are taking advantage of this route.

But, there is a problem, drivers are speeding on Prudden when they come from Derby-Milford (maybe blowing off steam because they’re aggravated?)

Well, school is out for summer, and there are many children who live on that street. Please drive carefully, keep your eyes open for children who may be riding bicycles, playing catch or tag, walking a dog… you never know. Children are everywhere and their lives are more important than you getting wherever you’re going a minute or two faster.

The primary contractor is Complete Construction, however, Regional Water Authority, UI, and Frontier will all have crews on the project.

Access to the UNH Orange Campus should be made from the Southern end of Derby-Milford Rd. from Grassy Hill Road. Detours have been posted specifically for UNH traffic.

Detours have been posted specifically for UNH traffic.

Construction is scheduled to take approximately 6 months.
