Hague The town of Hague will celebrate the Fourth of July in August.
Heavy rain and concerns about damage to the town beach caused the community’s traditional July 4th activities to be postponed this year.
Hoping for better weather, Hague will celebrate independence Friday, Aug. 2, in the town park.
The band Calamity Rock will perform 6 to 9 p.m. The Hague Fire Department will sell refreshments and fireworks will go off at dusk.
The delayed celebration may be a good thing,” Hague Supervisor Edna Frasier said.
“You had Hague, Ti, Bolton all having fireworks at about the same time,” Frasier said of July 4th. “This might be nice, to spread things out a little bit. We’ll see how pwople like having fireworks on August.”
The scheduled July 4th events in Hague was postponed following a week of heavy rain.
“The beach was a mess,” Frasier said. “We’d had so much rain we didn’t want people with chairs and stuff on the beach. When you walked on the sand you woulf sink right in. We were afraid a big crowd would destroy the beach.”
