Celebrate the Fourth in Carbondale

Dear Editor,

Happy Fourth of July, Carbondale!

Yes, folks, come and enjoy a great old-fashioned, small-town Fourth of July celebration.

At 9:30 a.m., the 27th famous annual kids parade will commence from 2nd Street. The parade travels down Main Street and ends at the gazebo, where a professional barbershop quartet will lead us in singing some patriotic songs.

This will be followed with a moving reading of the Declaration of Independence by community veterans and some local ladies. This will be followed by an Air Force flyover, then games, watermelon, a chalk art contest, prizes and fun.

Thanks to the Sakson Mortgage Group, there is a free concert in the park featuring Cabaret Diosa!

After dark, thanks to the generosity of many locals who donated their hard-earned money, the whole town can enjoy the annual fireworks show. Thanks to our outstanding men and women firefighters who donate their professional expertise and time setting off the fireworks safely for all of us to enjoy.

Thanks for your time.


Chris Chacos
