This year, the committee in conjunction with the town, is planning an extensive "family program" with a food festival, music for all generations, and fireworks.
A "food truck rodeo" will be held at Braintree High School, 128 Town St, Braintree, during the celebration program beginning at 2 PM after the parade has concluded. Over 25 diverse food trucks from all over New England will be on hand to offer something for everyone's appetite. Each truck will offer a variety of menu price options with three different levels that can fit into any family's budget.
There will be free + fairly priced activities and attractions so that all can participate and enjoy.
