Lexington's Fourth of July Festival returns to its traditional form
It was, ‘hot as a firecracker,’ Wednesday afternoon as Lexington Mayor Linda Gorton announced plans for a full Fourth of July Festival. The announcement came at the popular site for the fireworks show, downtown land owned by the R.J. Corman Railroad Group. Gorton said the pandemic impact is less this summer.
“And now with vaccines available to all, we are looking forward to life beyond the pandemic and it’s time to celebrate. So what better way to celebrate than with a fireworks spectacular,” said Gorton.
The festivities get going with the ice cream social on July first. This year’s festival will include a patriotic concert, the Bluegrass 10,000, the parade, and the fireworks show on the fourth.
