Adamstown Community Days will be held over Memorial Day weekend, combining the usual festivities with a celebration of Adamstown’s 250th anniversary.

? Activities begin at 5 p.m. on Friday with a pulled pork dinner prepared by the ACD committee in the pavilion, a cruise night with the Cocalico Cruisers Car Club, a presentation of awards by Sen. Mike Brubaker and The Mahoney Brothers presenting "Jukebox Heroes Live."
? Carnival rides open at 2 p.m. on Saturday. A wristband may be purchased for $15 that allows unlimited rides from 2 to 5 p .m. Sneakers the Clown will entertain at 3 and Josh Levingood will lead karaoke at 4:30. Immanuel Evangelical Congregational Church members will be serving meatball sandwiches, subs and spaghetti dinners throughout the day.

? On Sunday, a community worship service will be held in the Grove, beginning at 9:30 a.m. All are invited to attend. Carnival rides will begin at 2 p.m. with the wristband special again available. Adamstown Rod & Gun Club will be serving a chicken barbecue dinner and their famous trout chowder beginning at 2. At 4, a Mardi Gras Party with The Crawdaddies will fill the afternoon with the happy sounds of Flamin’ Dick & the Hot Rods will take the stage at 7.
There is no charge for any of the entertainment. Spectators are asked to bring a chair and settle down under the tent to enjoy the music. For those who prefer reserved seats, they are available for $10 for each musical performance.
The festivities will conclude with a big bang –a 10,000 rocket fireworks show by D&M Pyrotechnics will begin at 10 Sunday. The show will have a special finale to celebrate the 250th anniversary. In case of rain, the fireworks show will be held Memorial Day at 9.
