The train of Summerfest will keep rolling right into Saturday, July 4, beginning with the Monson Girl Scouts pancake breakfast at the fire station from 6:30 to 9 a.m. The parade will step off at 10 a.m., followed by the presentation of parade awards, Rotary Club Citizen of the Year and Summerfest Business of the Year. Music will include Greene Room Productions Open Mic Contest winners at Dave Grieve park at 12:30 p.m. and Palmer singer Noah Lis at 3:30 p.m.
