ANDOVER – The 24th annual Andover Olde Home Days begins its three-day run Friday night at the common’s gazebo with a free concert by country western singers Leavin City Limits.

But that is just one of the musical performances that will be held during the summer event that draws people from all over, including many who grew up in Andover, then moved away.

“Many people come here with their families and plan their weekend around it,” said Vickie Meisner, co-chairman, with her husband, Marshall, of the three-day event.

The big day is on Saturday, beginning at 10 a.m. with a parade complete with horses, floats, local politicians, music and for the first time, clowns.

Lots of clowns are expected to take part. A mechanical music machine from Bryant’s Stove and Museum in Thorndike will provide unusual music in the parade, along with the drum corps from the Rumford Snowshoe Club.

A complete listing of events is available at various businesses in the town.
