Every year the town of Herrick hosts a 4th of July celebration. There are events that take place for three days. Debbie Allen, Mayor of Herrick knows the event well. She used to be the one to plan it. And she says that without a doubt, this celebration is for the kids.
There is a lot that goes into putting the event on and Allen explains it’s a venture that lasts all year long.
The celebration has gone on for many years, but after awhile the fire department had to take it over. After that Allen and a friend started to grow the event back out.
Allen appeared as a guest during the events live coverage on Cruisin’ 98.3 WSVZ.
