Galeton festival in high gear

Galeton is one of the hot spots of the Pennsylvania Wilds during its 34th annual Red Suspenders Weekend, a lively festival sponsored by the volunteers of the Goodyear Hose Company.

It’s headquartered at Collins Park and culminates with one of the largest fireworks displays in the region just after dusk on Saturday.

Galeton Area Chamber of Commerce assists the fire company by sponsoring Saturday’s Independence Day parade, which steps off at 11 am at the school and progresses on Bridge, Germania, Union and West streets to the park.

Other highlights include the popular firefighters’ water battles at noon, the cash prize drawing at 5 pm, and musical performances by DownBeat Percussion and the Caledonia Highlanders Pipe and Drum Band at the park immediately after the parade.
