LYNDONVILLE – With newly updated state Covid regulations, the Lyndonville Lions Club is able to release additional details regarding this year’s schedule 4th of July festivities to take place in Lyndonville.

The spectacular fireworks show remains scheduled with a start time of 10 p.m. The Lyndonville Lions want everyone to know that this year’s fireworks show will consist exclusively of “high shots.”

This will allow spectators to view the fireworks from virtually anywhere in and around the village. Importantly, this variation allows spectators to remain in or on their personal vehicles, practice social distancing and still enjoy the fireworks to their full extent. The length of this year’s show, the largest in the region, remains the same as in previous years.

Additionally, the Lyndonville Lions will be serving 500 chicken barbecue dinners beginning at 1 p.m. on July 4th. Due to rising food costs, this year’s dinners will be $12 each. Pre-sale chicken barbeque tickets may be purchased from any member of the Lyndonville Lion’s Club as well as at the Lyndonville Branch of M&T Bank at the corner of South Main Street and Maple Avenue in Lyndonville.

This year’s chicken barbecue will begin serving at 1 p.m. from the cafeteria area at Lyndonville Central School and will be takeout/drive-thru only. Diners are encouraged, however, to bring a blanket or portable chairs and enjoy their dinner on the school grounds while also enjoying several live music performances taking place there.

The Lyndonville Lions will also open their fundraising hotdog stand on the school grounds and will be serving hotdogs and refreshments beginning at 11 a.m. until sold out. The daily festivities will once again include an extensive Arts & Crafts Show featuring handcrafted items from local vendors. The Arts & Crafts Show will be held on the front lawn of Lyndonville Central School and runs all day.

As reported earlier, despite the recent relaxation of Covid restrictions, the Main Street Parade remains cancelled for this year with the expectation of its return next year. It is the hope of the Lions Club that NY State regulations/guidelines will be relaxed further prior to July 4th.

The Lyndonville Lions remind everyone to stay safe and request that everyone follow state Covid guidelines at the time for safety and social distancing.
