LYNDONVILLE – The village of Lyndonville is full of patriotic pep today as the community hosts its 42nd annual Fourth of July celebration.

The event will be capped off with fireworks at 10 p.m. from the school campus.
At noon a parade started down Platten Road before emerging to big crowds of people on Main Street.

A 1950 Farmall was among several tractors in today’s parade.

The Oak Orchard Assembly of God on Ridge Road in Medina had a float in the parade called “Kids Krusade.” It promoted the church’s upcoming Vacation Bible School.

Orleans County Chief Coroner Scott Schmidt waves from a vintage hearse he drove in the parade.

Ray Bates and other veterans are escorted down Platten Road in the parade.

Gia Arnold, a State Senate candidate from Holley, walks in the parade and handed out information to people along the route.
