WILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington Fourth of July Committee has just released the schedule for the 2017 Wilmington Fun on the Fourth celebration.
The celebration will be held on and around the Wilmington Town Common from Thursday, June 29 to Sunday, July 2.
The carnival, run this year by Cushing Amusements, will run from 5pm to 9pm on Thursday; 5pm to 9pm on Friday; noon to 10pm on Saturday; and 1pm to 10pm on Sunday. Cushing Amusements, taking over for Fiesta Shows, promises to provide great ride specials.
The spectacular fireworks display will take place on Sunday, July 2 at 9:30pm.

A new tradition — a cornhole tournament on Family Day — will begin this year.
The Committee also released the schedule for the Wilmington Family Day on Saturday, July 1.
The Wilmington Fourth of July Committee will be releasing additional information regarding these events in the coming weeks.
