Bedford Explained: Bedford Day ~ How Did it Start, and Why?

By Gene Kalb

It’s that time of year again, Bedford Day. A day where you learn all the things about Bedford you never knew. There are kids, animals, trucks, food, and more. I personally love the simultaneous joy of the children and the disappointment of the parents after the goldfish is won. It’s always a lot of fun and I look forward to it every year. But the “every year” part got me thinking?

What is the History of Bedford Day, how did it start and why?

Bedford Day is Apt to be Spectacular on September 23

Compiled by The Bedford Citizen

Recreation Director Amy Hamilton manages the Town’s Bedford Day celebrations, and delights in finding space for everyone who wants to march in the parade or have a booth at the fair.

“Since the booth area grew beyond the Mudge Way parking lot area outside Town Hall, there are no ‘bad’ spaces,” says Hamilton. “There is a lot to see, plenty of food, and multiple activities. Bedford Day offers countless opportunities to see old friends, meet new ones and get to know our town.” Comfortable shoes are suggested.

Bedford Day festivities begin early on the morning of September 23, with the 23rd annual Danny Oates 5k / 2.5k walk / Kids Fun Run. At about the same time, Re/Max expects to launch a tethered hot air balloon, with rides from the playing field across from Bedford High School.
