Plans are now set for Shepherdstown's Independence Day parade and community picnic, which will be held on Thursday, July 4.
The parade will be held starting at 11 a.m. on German Street downtown. It will begin at Church Street and end at Princess Street.
The picnic will be held right afterward, from 12 noon to 3 p.m., in the pavilion at Morgan's Gove Park just south of town.
Everyone is welcome at both events and admission will be free.
The picnic will feature live music, with the Speakeasy Boys playing from noon to 1:30 p.m. and the Gypsy Ramblers playing from 1:30 to 3 p.m.
There will be lots of children's activities, including games and a water slide.
Hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, ice cream and non-alcoholic beverages will be for sale at reasonable prices. All proceeds from those sales will be used to help cover event costs.
There is plenty of parking at the park.
The parade and picnic are organized annually by the Rotary Club of Shepherdstown. The goal is to provide a wholesome, family-oriented Fourth of July celebration for the town.
