LYNDONVILLE — With newly updated state COVID-19 regulations, the Lyndonville Lions Club is releasing additional details about this year’s July 4 festivities.

Details will include:

n The annual July 4 show remains scheduled to start at 10 p.m.

“The Lyndonville Lions want everyone to know that this year’s fireworks show will consist exclusively of ‘high shots,’” club officials said in a news release. “This will allow spectators to view the fireworks from virtually anywhere in and around the village. Importantly, this variation allows spectators to remain in or on their personal vehicles, practice social distancing and still enjoy the fireworks to their full extent. The length of this year’s show, the largest in the region, remains the same as in previous years.”

n The Lyndonville Lions will be serving 500 chicken barbecue dinners beginning at 1 p.m. on July 4th. Due to rising food costs, this year’s dinners will be $12 each.

This year’s chicken barbecue will begin serving at 1 p.m. from the cafeteria area at Lyndonville Central School and will be takeout/drive-thru only. Diners are encouraged to bring a blanket or portable chairs and enjoy their dinner on the school grounds while also enjoying several live music performances taking place there.

Presale chicken barbecue tickets may be purchased from any member of the Lyndonville Lions Club as well as at the Lyndonville Branch of M&T Bank.

n The Lyndonville Lions will also open their fundraising hotdog stand on the school grounds and will be serving hotdogs and refreshments beginning at 11 a.m. until sold out. The daily festivities will once again include an extensive Arts & Crafts Show featuring handcrafted items from local vendors. The Arts & Crafts Show will be held on the front lawn of Lyndonville Central School and runs all day.

n Despite the recent relaxation of COVID restrictions, the Main Street Parade remains canceled for this year with the expectation of its return next year.

“It is the hope of the Lions Club that New York state regulations/guidelines will be relaxed further prior to July 4,” the club officials said. “The Lyndonville Lions remind everyone to stay safe and request that everyone follow New York state COVID guidelines at the time for safety and social distancing.”
