Akron celebrating 4th of July with “at home” event

Akron, while not able to do their usual Fourth of July festivities, will still be holding an “at home” event to celebrate the holiday.

Akron Chamber of Commerce officials, in a statement on Thursday, are asking residents and businesses in town to decorate their front yards, porches and store fronts for the Fourth of July.

A float of judges will parade through the town to award the BEST DECORATED Home & Business. The event will be live-streamed to the Akron 4th of July Facebook page from the judge’s float.

Anyone with questions can contact the Akron Chamber of Commerce.
