Luzerne hosting Independence Day celebration July 6

Posted

LUZERNE — The annual Luzerne Independence Day celebration is returning July 6 to downtown Luzerne.

As always there is no charge for entry to the event, but vendors will have a cost associated. Event organizer Marlene Kaminski said residents will be able to enjoy annual staples like goat poo bingo at 1 p.m., the float decorating contest during the parade and fireworks at dusk behind the American Legion. Krafts on the Corner will also return across the street from Luzerne Hardware from noon to 5 p.m.

Kaminski said this year the grand marshal of the parade will be Roy Wehnes. He is a World War II veteran that sleeps today in the same room he was born in. Kaminski said he was a great choice this year.

“He is a very cool guy,” she said. “He can tell you the whole history of Luzerne.”

New this year will be a cornhole tournament in front of Ma Deeters and participants should sign up by 1:30 p.m. There will also be a pellet gun range for children to play with that will be led by safety instructors.

The event will begin at noon in downtown Luzerne July 6 and continue throughout the day. Parade participants should line up on Palmer Rd. at 3:15 as the parade is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m., and there will be live music from 5 p.m. to dusk.
