LURAY, July 3 — There will be plenty of food, fireworks and family fun in Downtown Luray for the 4th of July as the Town, the Luray Downtown Initiative and the Page Alliance for Community Action (PACA) team up to host the “Downtown Get Down” from 5 to 9 p.m. on Monday.
A variety of foods trucks will provide the energy necessary to participate in lawn games, jump around inside inflatables, walk from shop to shop to take advantage of Downtown Spar Spangled Shopping and Dining, enter a Corn Hole Tournament on the Main Street Bridge, watch the Duck Races along the Hawksbill Creek or gather along the Greenway or at the fairgrounds for the fireworks finale.
In addition, a variety of live music will entertain the hundreds expected to descend upon the Downtown area, either at Ruffner Plaza under the Main Street Bridge along the Greenway, or at the “Party of the Plaza” hosted by Performing Arts of Luray (PAL) outside the Rebecca J. Graves Performing Arts Center.
Live performances scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. on Monday,
include Blue Ridge Rain…
…and Low Low Chariot.
