Lewisburg Bicentennial Celebration continues despite rain

While rain canceled multiple festivals and events throughout the weekend, the Lewisburg Bicentennial Celebration is continuing rain or shine.

“After three years of planning and lots and lots of hours, Mother Nature is the one who decided not to cooperate today, but it’s still going on,” said Mark Madigan, entertainment chairman.

Though flooding at Lewisburg Community Park canceled some of the celebration Saturday, live entertainment will continue all weekend at the entertainment tent.

“We’ve got a lot of good entertainment yet to come, rain or shine,” Madigan said.

The wet weather did dampen some spirits.

“We started out with 25 vendors for food, we’re down to about four,” Madigan continued. “They’re staying...and they’re busy.”

Though the weather is “disheartening,” Madigan said people were still coming out.

“We’ve got people who came out of state; we have someone who came from the Netherlands,” he said. “We’re still making it happen. Our group is tough and they’re making it work.”
