LYNDONVILLE – The Lyndonville Lions Club is ready for a busy day of activities to help the community celebrate the Fourth of July on Tuesday.

The big events are a parade beginning at noon and fireworks at 10 p.m. But there is a lot of things happening throughout the day.

Some of the events include:

  • Arts and crafts sale from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the school front lawn
  • Antique and classic car cruise-in at 10 a.m. at the school parking lot
  • Hot dog stand and other food vendors beginning at 11 a.m. on the school grounds
  • Parade starts at noon with Russ Martino as the grand marshal
  • Chicken barbecue from 1 until 3:30 p.m. or sold out in the high school cafeteria
  • One-Man Band (Mike McCauley) performing from 5 to 7 p.m. in the parking lot behind the school
  • Flipside Band performing on a stage by school baseball field from 7 p.m. until the start of the fireworks
  • Fireworks by Young Explosives start at 10 p.m.

The Lyndonville Lions Club is organizing the celebration for the 49th year. This year’s event has a theme, “An Old-Fashioned Fourth of July Celebration.”

The Lions are encouraging all residents to fly American flags or. The Lions have plans to hand out over 5,000 American flags to parade goers.

Just before the parade there will be a military flyover from the 911th United States Air Force Reserve from Pittsburgh, Pa. It is expected that the flyover will pass over Main Street right at noon, just before the start of the parade. This is the second year there will be a flyover before the parade.
