July 3-4: The festival, held on the Common in Old North Andover Center, will be spread over two days. The fireworks display will take place the night of July 3 at North Andover Middle School. The show will likely get underway at around 9:15 p.m., according to Jeffrey Coco, chairman of the Festival Committee.

The area immediately surrounding the pyrotechnics display will be cordoned off, so the best places for viewing the fireworks are the Common, along Route 125 near the middle school or North Andover High School.

From 5 to 10 p.m. July 3, there will be entertainment and food vendors on the Common. A beer and wine tent will be manned — and strictly regulated — by Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2104 both days, Coco said.
