61st annual JS Town Meeting brings a week of festivities

The 61st annual Jersey Shore Town Meeting Fourth of July celebration will be held Sunday through Saturday, July 9.

The event will have free entertainment, rides, carnival games, food vendors and more.

There will also be a fireworks display on Saturday, July 9, at 9:45 p.m.

The parade will return to its normal route starting at Bastress Street traveling to Allegheny Street and then onto Main Street.

This year’s Queen Tiadaghton contestants will be present during the week of festivities.

“(They will be) doing volunteer work — that way after that it gives them time to interact with the public itself,” said Alyssa Fink, chairperson for The Queen of Tiadghton.

The Queen Tiadaghton crowning will be held on Thursday.

“They will have the responsibilities of showing their leadership — showing up to parades and volunteering within the community to show proper values,” Fink said.

There will be a number of other events throughout the week including many band performances to see on the Town Meeting stage.
