One of the funnest days of the summer is always the annual Old Hallowell Day celebration. This year's date will be this coming Saturday, July 15.

It's a day to celebrate all things Hallowellian! Old Hallowell Day is run by the Old Hallowell Day Committee, a private 501(c)3 non-profit that is not part of the City of Hallowell.

From the giant parade in the morning, to the spectacular fireworks in the evening, there is something for everyone, both young and old alike, during Old Hallowell Day.
