News About Town: We're gearing up for Beach Fest, and so is the Town's Park and Rec department. In preparation for the fun, Trade Street will be closed between John Street and McDowell Street starting on Friday, at 9:00 a.m. That closure will expand to the Main Street intersection at 5 p.m. when the festival opens. That portion of Trade will remain closed until late Saturday night after the festival closes.
