Bretton Woods, New Hampshire (PRWEB) June 2, 2007
New Hampshire's grandest all-American family celebration will be held at The Mount Washington Resort's Firecracker Carnival and Independence Day Celebration on Sunday July 1, 2007. Live entertainment, great food, endless games, family fun galore and the best fireworks in New England will all take place at the Resort's alpine center, Bretton Woods, a new and expanded venue for this Fourth of July tradition in New Hampshire.
Gates will open at noon on July 1 for the festivities that include a variety of fun food choices, a climbing wall, bouncy houses, dunk tanks, pony rides, magic shows, pie eating contests and musical performances.
The music is slated to begin at the alpine center at 1:00 p.m. with the all-American blues sounds of the Jeremy Dean Band. The acoustic bluegrass brother duo, The Sky Blue Boys, will follow at 2:00 p.m. with their nimble tune picking, and the energetic Wicked Smart Horn Band takes the stage at 5:15 p.m. Beginning at 7:15 p.m., Banjo Dan and the Mid-Nite Plowboys will deliver some of the finest, most dynamic, and most original bluegrass music ever heard in this corner of the country.
Following a day of family fun and entertainment, the award-winning Atlas Advanced Pyrotechnics will present a musically-choreographed display that has become known as "the most spectacular fireworks display north of the South Pole". Following the fantastic fireworks, the Jeremy Dean Band will close the day with their rendition of patriotic favorites.
