This Friday, July 4th. Hanford Mills Museum in East Meredith, NY will be having an old-fashioned 4th of July celebration. The day includes frog jumping contests, a kids' fishing derby on the Mill Pond, sack races, and much more. There will be live music, Mill tours, and great food all day. Take this opportunity to have a picnic, you can bring your own food or enjoy the food of the venders that will be there all day. A favorite tradition of the Independence Day Celebration is the chance to sample ice cream made with a steam powered churn. Listen as Liz Callahan, director at Hanford Mills Museum, gives more details on the day's events.

The Day events run from 10am-5pm with the kids' fishing derby from 10am-12pm and frog-jumping contests at 12:30pm and 2:30pm. Check out their website and Facebook page for more information on this celebration, or more events to come.
