The COVID-19 pandemic put the kibosh on Natick’s annual July 4th parade, but organizers of that event are encouraging locals to take part in two other events: A house decorating contest and scavenger hunt.
Registration for the house decorating contest has opened, according to the non-profit Natick Friends of the 4th. Those of you looking to participate should fill out the application by June 18 and be ready to show off your masterpiece from July 1-5. The public will have its say about the best displays, the top 4 of which will earn gift certificates to Natick restaurants. Information on voting for displays will be available on the Natick Friends of the 4th website as of July 1.
Separately, a scavenger hunt featuring Natick historic and notable landmarks will take place the first week of July. Instructions to participate will be made available on the Friends website beginning July 1.
Natick Director of Public Health Jim” White will serve as grand marshal. This recognizes his long tenure with the town and his team’s extraordinary efforts during the pandemic.
