EBENSBURG HOMECOMING WEEKEND EVENTS
Ebensburg – On Friday, July 30th & Saturday, July 31st Ebensburg Main Street Partnership will host their annual Downtown Shutdown and Homecoming celebration.
The weekend begins when the streets at the center of town close down at 6 pm to set up for a free concert that runs from 8 pm to 11 pm. This year’s event will feature Bachelor Boys Band – a high-energy, dance band featuring everything from top 40, to classics, to classical and jazz. Many of the downtown shops and restaurants are planning specials, events and live music as well, so we encourage everyone to follow our website or Facebook page as we are always updating our schedule of events.
Saturday begins with a community-wide yard sale, a fishing derby at Lake Rowena, a Farmer’s Market in Penn Eben Park, 5K & 15K at the Ghost Town Trail, Yoga at the Borough Pool, Free Tennis Clinics at the Tennis Center and so much more. “There are a lot of different activities happening throughout the day and into the evening – it’s an event that our community loves to celebrate!” said Danea Koss, Community Development Director. Yard Sale maps are now available at the Borough office, Ebensburg Library, and online at www.ebensburgmainstreet.com.
The Ebensburg Public Library will be hosting an outdoor book sale, yard sale, basket raffle, and, new this year, The Grove will be onsite with their food truck.
The Bishop Carroll Girl’s Soccer Team will be hosting an indoor yard sale, basket raffle, and breakfast/lunch food sales in the High School Cafetorium.
Cambria Summit ABATE will return with a backpack give-a-way (while supplies lasts) at Lake Rowena Pavilion.
Nearly 30 baskets, donated by the Main Street Partnership and local businesses for the Homecoming basket raffle are currently on display at First National Bank at 111 W. High Street. Anyone may now purchase raffle tickets at the bank through Friday, the 30th, and then onsite at Lake Rowena beginning around 5 pm on Homecoming day.
Homecoming festivities will come to a close at Lake Rowena with food, fireworks, a bonfire and live music performance by Flood City Brass from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
