MELROSE — The Mt. Hood Park Association is sponsoring its 32nd Annual July 4th Concert in front of the clubhouse at Mount Hood Memorial Park, 100 Slayton Rd., Melrose. This concert is being paid in part by a grant from the Melrose Arts Council.

Festivities will begin Tuesday, July 4th, at 6:45 p.m. with the Middlesex Concert Band providing music. This year’s music program promises to be an exciting selection of new songs highlighting the patriotic theme of the day as well as popular show tunes. Free popcorn and lemonade for the children will be provided compliments of Golf Management Co as quantities last.

We are continuing the tradition of ending the concert with “Stars and Stripes Forever,” in which all children will be given free American flags to wave while marching in front of the clubhouse.

Come join us for a special July 4th celebration and bring your family and blankets or chairs to listen to music in one of the most beautiful and pristine venues in Melrose.

The Mt. Hood Park Association is dedicated to the protection, preservation, and promotion of Mount Hood Memorial Park. To learn more about the Association, please visit our recently renovated web site at
