Heritage Day -- which marks Easton's status as one of only three cities where the Declaration of Independence was read in public back in 1776 -- returns on Sunday.
There's a lot happening, more than we want to list here. You can visit the official Heritage Day website to find out everything that's going on. Here are five things that stand out.
1. Learn some history. When we think of history and Heritage Day, we think of a re-enactor reading the Declaration in Centre Square. And that will happen this year -- at noon -- as well. But there are other history-related events this year, most notably the Sigal Museum's display of one of the only direct copies of the Declaration of Independence.
2. Hear some music. At Riverside Park, you'll find the Large Flowerheads performing at 6 p.m., and Citizen's Band Radio on stage at 8 p.m. and 9:45 p.m. Over at Scott Park, the School of Rock Street Band plays at 5 p.m., followed by Start Making Sense at 7:30 p.m. and 9:45 p.m.
3. Entertain your kids. There's a lot for kids to do at Heritage Day, whether it's "enlisting" with the re-enactor army, checking out the moonbounce or the city's specialty vehicles.
4. Drink some beer. For the first time ever, Heritage Day will be serving beer. In keeping with the theme of the day, the Colonial Beer Gardens will serve flavors like George Washington Porter, Thomas Jefferson Ale and Poor Richard's Tavern Spruce at the Yard Brewing Company in Centre Square from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Then from 5 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., you can check out Weyerbacher's tent in Riverside Park.
5. See some fireworks. The Fourth of July has passed, but you can still see the sky lit up. Each year, the city closes out Heritage Day with a big fireworks display along the Delaware River at Scott Park, starting at 9:30 p.m.
