Hope to host Old-Fashioned Independence Day on Friday

The town of Hope will be celebrating Independence Day a little early.

Jessica Brown, a member of the Yellow Trail Museum board, explains:

Brown said that the event is both nostalgic and low cost.

There will also be old-time games for the children to participate in.

There will also be  family friendly activities and contests such as a Little Miss and Mr. Firecracker competition, an apple pie baking contest and a fish fry with the Hartsville Volunteer Fire Department.

Things get underway at 5 p.m. with fireworks at about 10 p.m.

The event is free, but you can buy an ice cream float for $1 to support the museum.
