--Festive homes with decorated porches, doors, decks, and yards
--Family gatherings with red, white, and blue clothes, face paintings, and hair styles
--Cook-outs with festive, July 4th-themed dishes, drinks, and decor

Photos will be displayed on the Town of Wakefield website ( and Facebook page. Members of the community are encouraged to like and comment on their favorite photos to show support for their friends and neighbors.
