Full day of fun planned for the Fourth here
Thanks to the Ephrata Recreation Center, Ephrata Church of the Brethren and a whole host of community organizations, there will once again be a full evening of fun planned in the Lincoln Heights area on Friday, July 4.
As has been the case for many years now, the evening starts with Community Fun Night in the area around the church. This is a free community event, held at 201 Crescent Avenue, Ephrata, adjacent to the Lincoln Heights area, where Ephrata’s fireworks are set off later in the evening. Come out and enjoy an evening of fun for the whole family, beginning at 5 p.m. with the games starting at 6, and ending with the Ephrata Fireworks display at 9:30 p.m.
The community event at the church features live music, juggling demonstrations by the DKers (6:30 to 8:30 p.m.), pony rides from 6 to 8 p.m., and a variety of foods and beverages for sale. The following are free: admission, games for children, inflatables, barrel wagon rides, face tattoos, spin art and popcorn.
Parking is by donation. Door prizes donated by local businesses will be drawn at 9 p.m. Visit facebook.com/ephrata4th for more information.
To cap off Ephrata’s celebration of Independence Day, which actually begins in the morning with the 37th running of the Firecracker Five Mile Run (see B1 and sports for details), will be a free fireworks show launched from the Lincoln Heights Outdoor Recreation Area.
Organized by the Ephrata Rec Center, the fireworks are also made possible through generous donations by various community organizations and businesses.
Fireworks are visible from most areas of the borough but parking is also available at Ephrata Middle School, Ephrata Rec, Church of the Brethren and Ephrata High School.
