LYNDONVILLE – With the further lifting of Covid-related restrictions, the Lyndonville Lions Club wishes to inform everyone of the final updates for this year’s 4th of July festivities in Lyndonville.

While there will be no Main Street Parade for this year, the Houseman-Tanner American Legion Color Guard will perform an opening ceremony on the front lawn at Lyndonville Central School beginning at 11 a.m. The annual Arts and Crafts show and the Lions hot dog fundraising tent also open at 11 a.m.

While previously announced as drive-thru/take-out only, the annual Lions chicken barbecue dinners will now be served in the Lyndonville Central Schools cafeteria where indoor seating and restrooms will also be available. Chicken dinners begin serving at 1 p.m. until sold out. Dinner tickets are still available at M&T Bank Lyndonville, Orleans Ford and Hartway Motors in Medina, at the door or from any Lions Club member. Tickets are $12 each.

Afternoon entertainment begins at noon with the Gates Keystone Club Police Pipes & Drums followed by the Mark Time Marchers at 1 p.m. and the Lyndonville Central School Jazz Band at 2pm.  Various vendors will also be providing great food and refreshments all day long and into the evening and the Who Dats will be performing from 7 p.m. until the start of the evening fireworks show.

The fireworks display – the largest in the region – begins at 10 p.m. and the school grounds are now open to everyone for viewing the spectacular fireworks show. Even though the school grounds will be open, the display will still be “high shots” this year. The rain date for the fireworks is July 5th at 10 p.m. The Lyndonville Lions wish everyone a safe and fun holiday and look forward to seeing you all in Lyndonville on the Fourth!
