Independence Day

Sunday, July 4

Fireworks displays are making a comeback this year! No need for your own show. We’ve got you covered. The Mt. Lebanon Recreation Department is bringing back the July 4 concert in the park, too! The Delaneys will take the stage at 7:30 p.m., followed by fireworks at 9:30 p.m. Rain date is July 5. Although daytime activities such as the climbing wall, petting zoo, games and more are still on hold, odds are pretty good that we will be back to a full-on community day next time the Fourth rolls around.
