LANDAFF, N.H. (AP) - The town of Landaff, New Hampshire, is getting ready to celebrate its 250th birthday.

Three days of contests, games, live music and historical exhibits are taking place starting Friday, Aug. 15.

The highlight is a parade on Aug. 16 with floats, antique cars, and other attractions. There also will be an edible cake quilt.

The Caledonian Record (https://bit.ly/1qY6cJ5) reports the town, which has a population of 417, was first chartered to a group of speculators by the King of England after the French and Indian War. The town nearly became home to Dartmouth College and was part of Vermont at one point because of insufficient representation in the New Hampshire Legislature.
