Come on and join our convoy Bridge work won’t affect Make-A-Wish event Sunday
A local Mother’s Day tradition is trucking through town on Sunday.
A long line of trucks will once again make its way through Lancaster County as part of the Make-A-Wish of Philadelphia and Susquehanna Valley’s 24th Annual Mother’s Day Truck Convoy and Family Fun Festival.
This year a detour is involved for Ephrata traffic since the bridge on Route 272 is currently under construction. The convoy will stay on its historical route. However, for approximately 1-1/2 hours, southbound local traffic will be rerouted. With the help of traffic controllers, local southbound traffic on Route 272 will be detoured at Rothsville Road to Newport Road, Route 772 and back onto southbound Route 272. Local residents will be alerted the week before with electronic signs.
Hundreds of trucks will depart from Burle Business Park at 1:30 p.m. and travel west on Route 30 to Route 222; north on Route 222 to the Brownstown exit; a route through Akron to Ephrata, then to State Street; onto Route 322 and then return to Burle Business Park.
The Family Fun Festival will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Burle Business Park on New Holland Avenue in Lancaster.
The Make-A-Wish auction takes place at 8:30 a.m., featuring more than 400 items such as handmade quilts, autographed football by DeSean Jackson of Eagles, autographed football from Pittsburgh Steelers, private wine and cheese tour of Wheatland, jewelry and art.
Bingo starts at 9 a.m. Food, games, live entertainment, clowns and mascots will be available all day at the Burle Business Park. Admission is free.
Free shuttle bus transportation will be provided from the parking lots of Lancaster Catholic High School and Grandview Plaza on New Holland Avenue.
In 2012, more than 336 trucks participated in the convoy and the event raised more than $325,000.
