LYNDONVILLE – Today is Lyndonville’s day to shine as the community welcomes an estimated 12,000 to 15,000 people for the 45thannual Fourth of July celebration sponsored by the Lyndonville Lions Club.
It was about 90 degrees during the parade, which prompted this group from the Middleport Fire Department to spray water on people along the parade route.
