Even without fireworks, Sandwich’s annual celebration can still draw a crowd.

On Saturday, the parade stepped off from the Sandwich Fairgrounds. Events continue today, as the Sandwich Cub Scout Pack 345 will serve its 7th annual Pancake Breakfast from 7 a.m. to noon at the Sandwich Fire Station. Tickets at the door are $5 for adults and children 12 and over; $4 for seniors; and $3 for children ages 4 to 12.

A morning worship service will be held by the Sandwich Federated Church at 9 a.m. at Veterans Park by the gazebo.

A Custom Motorcycle Show will be featured from noon until 3 p.m. in Veterans Park, sponsored by Black Magic Customs of Sandwich. Registration begins at 10:30 a.m. and awards will be given at 3:15 p.m.

A Walk Down Memory Lane program will be held at 1 p.m. in the Sandwich Fire Station. A panel of senior citizens who grew up in Sandwich will tell of their memories and experiences.
