This year's Return Day will be held on Nov. 5, rain or shine, on the Circle in Georgetown, with the parade beginning at 1:30 p.m. The featured carriage for this event will be the Queen Elizabeth II royal carriage, part of the exten- si,e carriage collection located at the Mrvel Museum in George- town. Tradition mandates that the opposing candidates in each polit- ical race are to ride in carriages to- gether, as a symbol of bipartisan politics for a workable form of government focused on the future. The "burying of the hatchet" cere- mony will be held on the Circle in front of the courthouse, a rite that dates back to 1791. The Return Day Committee has extended an invitation for every- one to attend this historic event. Vendors wishing to participate should call the Return Day office at 855-0722 or fax 855-9088 for information. Spaces are limited, so earty response s recommend: ed.
