Planning is underway for the celebration of the 292nd anniversary of the town’s founding.

Bedford Day is officially scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 18.

Town Manager Sarah Stanton announced the resumption of the event, as part of her report on the relaxation and evaporation of Covid-19 protocols and policies.

“I’m thrilled,” Recreation Director Amy Hamilton, whose department organizes and manages the parade and street fair, said Tuesday. “I am going to post applications on our website and email the forms to 2019 participants. I already opened the activities online so that people may enroll as soon as they receive the forms.”

Hamilton said the decision to proceed is “fantastic. I edited the form a month ago. Everywhere I would go people would ask me, ‘Any word yet.’”

She said she mused with her staff about how to impose crowd size limits at Bedford Day happenings. “Twenty percent of a typical parade crowd size? Who knows how you control that?” she wondered. Now it isn’t a factor.

The director said more details will be addressed at the department staff meeting in early June.
