Fireworks! Log rolling! A money pile! Those are only some of the events at this year’s Fourth of July celebration in Petersburg. Other activities include some traditional favorites, like street games and ducky races. But there are some new events and variations this year, too. Robbie Feinberg spoke with Parks and Recreation Director Donnie Hayes and supervisor Jody Forgey about some of those new activities.
The events start at 7 a.m. Thursday and last throughout the day. KFSK will have its own Kiddie Carnival in a new location this year, the First Bank parking lot. The Humane Association’s Strut Your Mutt competition will be held at 11 a.m. And you can also check out the annual fireworks celebration tomorrow night at 11 p.m. at the ball fields.
