As many of you are aware, for the past few years I’ve been involved with the East Petersburg Events Committee. It is just one of the ways that I have found myself intentionally invested and involved in our local neighborhood. Each year the East Petersburg Events Committee puts on some great free events in the East Petersburg Community Park.
One of our most popular events is happening on Saturday, July 1, 2017. Independence Day in the Park! The East Petersburg Events Committee invites you to the East Petersburg Community Park, to celebrate Independence Day with a live concert, a movie in the park, and an exciting evening of fireworks. All of these things are free to everyone!
There are always yummy food trucks and vendors onsite. Because of last years success, we have even added a few more food vendors this year.
MUSIC IN THE PARK
On this first Saturday in July, from 6:30-8:30pm, you are invited to come out to hear the musical talents of local favorite Duane Slaymaker. Duane Slaymaker is a well-traveled performer and Lancaster County native. He plays everyone’s favorites. We are always excited to have him for this free event in the East Petersburg Community Park.
MOVIE IN THE PARK
At 8:30p, bring your neighbors, friends or family to relax under the stars and enjoy a movie in the park. This year, we will be showing Secret Life of Pets. Every year, our movie in the park is a favorite part of this exciting night. I know that my kids have been especially excited for this movie.
FIREWORKS IN THE PARK
Then, as the night draws to an end and right as our movie in the park concludes, we encourage you to breathe in the warm summer air as you lay back and enjoy a presentation of the LANCASTER TOYOTA INDEPENDENCE DAY FIREWORKS DISPLAY! This exciting firework show.
I hope to see you there on July 1st, 2017. Our family will be there, and a highlight for me is always running into friends and neighbors. If you see me, please stop and say hello!
