Even with the threat of storms all day, Dunbarton celebrated its Old Home Day with a packed town square on Saturday. The festivities started with a parade from Route 13 to Barnard Hill and then to Robert Rogers Road at 10:30 a.m. The music at the gazebo lasted all day from the Nevers Band to the Club Soda Band and Barry Brealy Music.

There were demonstrations of stonecutting, blacksmithing and basket crafts as well as woolmaking. There were also 15 vendors selling or demonstrating their wares the whole day. And best of all, free ice cream.
