IMG_1473The Town Square marks the Center of Town and houses the Holiday Tree and the Veterans Memorial. Visit the Square for a short walk, read the Civil War sign to learn more about Civil War activity around Lovettsville, and read the names of the veterans honored with pavers in the Veterans Memorial.

Many events now use the Town Square for festivities. Don’t miss Wintertainmentfest which includes the Holiday Tree Lighting or Berserkle on the Squirkle. Wintertainmentfest typically occurs on the first Friday in December. Come out, sip cocoa and cheer the lighting of the tree to kick off your Holiday Season. Go Berserkle on the Squirkle at the New Year. Start working off those holiday pounds by running around the circle on the Town Square. A fun new event to celebrate the New Year! Go patriotic by attending the Memorial Day Ceremony, Veterans Day Ceremony and Patriot Day Ceremony.
