You can reserve as many spaces as you want and your car can be parked in your space.

Refreshments will be available for purchase from the Muhlenberg Community Library fund raising group, so the sale of food or drinks of any kind is prohibited.  The sale of weapons of any kind, counterfeit/fake merchandise, illegal fireworks and alcoholic beverages are prohibited on park property.

Mark your calendars now so you won’t miss out on the great deals.  Pre-registration is required for we only have 130 spots available.

The Department is also planning a Memorial Day Ceremony on Monday, May 29th at 9AM at Jim Dietrich Park near the flag pole.  Our program will consist of Staff Sergeant Joel W. Sharp and State Rep. Mark Rozzi as speakers.
