Town of Gerry Bicentennial
We became 200 years old on June 1, 2012! The Gerry Bicentennial committee and residents in the Town of Gerry have been busy putting together a celebration for the 200th birthday of our town!
The celebration starts with a parade at 2:00 PM starting on Levant Road at the Army Reserve Center and finishing at the review stand at the Larson Memorial Park on Route 60. Following the parade will be Opening Ceremonies with invited guests and speakers. The picnic activities will follow with booths, games, music and fun for our community. At 5:00 PM we will have a pig roast for our town residents, parade and picnic participants, and persons that have a history with us. The Mountain Railroad will perform from 7:30 - 9:30 PM with fireworks at dusk. The fireworks will be scheduled for Sunday evening if there is inclement weather.
We are encouraging people who have a history in our town to also attend the picnic, whether you lived here as a child or your family ancestors were a part of our history.
A few suggestions for the day;
- Sunscreen and /or Umbrella
- Lawn chair
Parking will be available, but limited at the park. There is also parking at the Town Hall and across the park next to Hatch Creek. Fire police will be available to direct traffic.
An invitation is open to the public to enjoy our parade, entertainment with the Mountain Railroad at the Gerry Rodeo Arena and the fireworks.
Please also note that the park is designated for healthy lungs. It is a no smoking facility.
Come and join us, we look forward to seeing you!
