Elks to Again Sponsor Free July 4th Picnic in the Park
The Presque Isle Elks will again sponsor a free Community Celebration at Presque Isle’s Riverside Park on Independence Day, Monday, July 4.
Special recognition will be given to all active and retired military personnel as an expression of the Elks’ gratitude for their service.
Elks will be grilling hot dogs and hamburgers starting at 11:00 a.m to be served to the public, free of charge, along with soft drinks, a variety of chips, watermelon, cotton candy, popcorn and shaved ice.
For young people, there will be games and contests with prizes for all contestants. Bounce houses will also return to the park for children under age 12.
Adults will be entertained by a variety of extremely talented musicians. Wendell Hudson, formerly of the “Mustangs”, Nelson Michaud, from “Centerline”, James “Sheldon” Wright, Leland Clark, Simon Clair, and many others will be playing at the gazebo in the park.
And a refurbished dunking booth will be at Riverside Park.
