This year’s theme for Mayfest is “Maytown’s Celebrations”. Maytown will be 260 years old and we will be celebrating our town’s birthday with activities and displays from our previous celebrations. There will be artifacts and displays from 1910 Old Home Week, the 1960 Bicentennial, the 225th Anniversary in 1985, and Maytown 250 in 2010. Activities are planned for all ages!
