Easton Community Spirit Day Set for Sunday

This year's Easton Community Spirit Day is set for this weekend, on Sunday, Sept. 2 from 3 to 10 p.m. in Scott Park.

Hosted by the Mayor's Office of Special Events (MOOSE), the day is being billed as a “Rockin’ and Rollin’ on the Waterfront.”

The Main Street Cruisers are set to take the stage at 4 p.m. with a high energy show featuring true to the original versions of many rock n' roll hits of the 50s and 60s. Lenny Longo, lead vocalist and guitarist of Bill Haley's Comets, is the celebrity guest performer of the group.

At 6:30 p.m., the joEs will entertain the crowd, performing more rock n’ roll. They have been delighting crowds for more than 18 years and have performed with legendary groups like Eddie Money, Three Dog Night, America, and the Turtles.

Finishing off the day's musical events and led by former Bethlehem Mayor and former Lehigh County Executive Don Cunningham, Don Cunningham and Associates will play a mix of rhythm and blues, along with rock too. Cunningham and Associates opened for legendary rock n' roller Chuck Berry at the State Theatre last year.

Community Spirit Day will culminate with a fireworks display by Garden State Fireworks over the forks of the Delaware and Lehigh rivers.

Last minute spaces are still available for food and beverage vendors, as well as community groups who would line to have a display or informational booth. For more information, please call the Mayor’s Office at 610-250-6610.
