Holiday events planned

By Joseph Slacian

The Fourth of July holiday will see several celebrations around Wabash County this week.

Wabash’s celebration, including fireworks, will take place on Friday, July 5, to coincide with the city’s First Friday event.
On Friday, The Bulldogs will perform music on Miami Street in downtown Wabash.

In addition, visitors to First Friday can stop in at several local businesses -- Courtyard at Charley Creek Inn, Borders & Beyond Gallery, Dr. James Ford Historic Home, Beacon Credit Union aboard Trolley No. 85, Autumn Ridge Rehabilitation Centre’s outdoor booth, Twisted Scissors Salon and Riverfront Sweets and Eats – and have their First Friday guide stamped.

Guides – available at the feature businesses, Visit Wabash County’s welcome center and Modoc’s Market – that are fully stamped will be entered to win a First Friday gift basket.

Trolley No. 85 will be making stops near Eagles Theatre, The Depot on Canal Street, Wabash County Historical Museum, Dr. James Ford Historic Home, and Riverfront Sweets & Eats.

The city’s fireworks display will begin at 10 p.m. at the Morrett Sports Complex (Field of Dreams).

Roann and Somerset will have celebrations on Saturday, July 6.

The Town Of Roann will be celebrating the nation’s birthday with breakfast in the bridge, garage sales, kids games, tours of the Stockdale Mill, fireworks and much, much, more. The tractor pulls have been cancelled because of the farmers still in the fields.

Activities are planned throughout the day around the town. (See Ann Myers Roann News column for a full schedule of events).

The town’s fireworks display will begin at 9 p.m. at the pulling field.

In Somerset, the fireworks display also will be on Saturday, July 6.

It will occur at the end of Bundy Court on the softball field. Rick and Marva Miller and their family have conducted this program for several years.
