Light Up The Sky

submitted by Carmen Carney

The Light Up the Sky for the 4th of July Committee will be hosting the 3rd annual Fourth of July celebration at the Monroe Community Park on Saturday July 4th. The events will start at noon and last until dark when there will be a spectacular fireworks show. 

Local food vendors will be available for a delicious lunch and dinner while carnival rides and games will provide entertainment. Our center stage will host bands for your listening enjoyment. 

Vendors will be available with face painting and other crafts. If you would like to rent a craft booth for the day, please contact Cherrie at We will also have free games such as sack races, tug-of-war, balloon toss and cornhole for kids of all ages. 

To make this day a great success we will need volunteers in one hour time slots all day to help run the free games and provide assistance at the information booth. Volunteer by contacting Carmen at 

If you would like to sign up for the cornhole tournament (2 person teams), submit an apple pie for the best pie judging, or sign up for the tug-of-war tournament (3 person teams under 18 or 18 and over), you can also e-mail or sign up at the information booth on the 4th. Slots will be filled on a first come first serve policy. We hope to see you at the park on the 4th!
