EBENSBURG HOMECOMING & DOWNTOWN SHUTDOWN –A WEEKEND FULL OF ACTIVITIES
Ebensburg – On Friday, July 29th & Saturday, July 30th Ebensburg will host their annual Downtown Shutdown and Homecoming celebration which have become localized popular events for the community.
The weekend begins when the streets at the center of town close down from 8 pm to 11 pm for a free concert. This year’s event will once again feature Pittsburgh-based band, Mercedez — a high energy band playing a wide-ranging variety of upbeat dance music.
Events continue on Saturday with a Community-wide yard sale, a fishing derby at Lake Rowena, a Farmer’s Market in Penn Eben Park and continues with a full schedule of events throughout the day. “There is really something for everyone during our annual Homecoming event – fishing, shopping, sports, games, live music, fireworks and more!” said Danea Koss, Community Development Director. Yard Sale maps will be made available at the Borough office, Ebensburg Library, and online at www.ebensburgmainstreet.com a few weeks prior.
Baskets donated by local businesses for the Homecoming basket raffle will be on display at First National Bank at 111 W. High Street in the weeks leading up to Homecoming. Raffle tickets will be available at the bank through the Friday, the 29th, and then onsite at Lake Rowena beginning around 5 pm on Homecoming day.
