In 2005, Petrovich was found in violation of Andover's alcoholic beverage laws because he did not have the correct license for serving alcohol to patrons on the restaurant's outdoor patio. The restaurant had the correct licenses before Petrovich bought it in 2003, but he failed to indicate that he would continue to serve alcohol outdoors, and the license was not renewed.

The tradition of the Fourth of July horribles parade in Andover dates back to the early 1800s. The tradition waned over the years and was resurrected in 1970 by the Andover Service Club. In 1982 there was another revival of the Fourth's celebrations by the nonprofit Committee for Patriotic Observances.

The orginal parades were more an adult political event featuring floats and marchers making fun of town officials or adults dressed as hobos with carriages decorated with junk. The contemporary parade includes a more patriotic flavor of floats, children in costumes, decorated bikes and doll carriages, dressed up dogs, and patriotic banners and flags.
