Saturday: A Fireworks Celebration

Star Spangled Celebration 2020, 10 to 10:30 p.m. in Lebanon. The Lebanon Strawberry Festival will host a fireworks show launching from Cheadle Lake, with area residents invited to direct their eyes to the skies from home. While Cheadle Lake Park is closed to promote social distancing, the sky is wide open and fireworks will be launched high enough for them to be seen from almost anyplace in town. Be sure to follow all laws and do not park along the road, as illegal parking will not be allowed. COVID may have stopped a lot of things in the community, but we are able to do something to bring us all together. Information:
