Coney Days event Today

June 25th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

 In 1987, Lonaconing celebrated its 150th anniversary as a chartered town.

A committee was formed to plan the celebration that included writing a book, “Home in the Hills,” historic window displays, parades and a pageant depicting the town's history as a coal mining “boom town.”

An outgrowth of this event was the formation of a new organization, The George's Creek Promotion Council, with a mission statement of promoting and supporting all efforts to showcase and benefit the Lonaconing area.

One of it's major projects has been Coney Days, which will be celebrated for the 30th time this year from June 25 to July 5.

The highlights of the week-long Coney Days celebration is Sunday in the Park on June 26 from 1 to 6 p.m. in the Iron Furnace Park on Main Street.

The event features live music from Garrett Highland Pipes & Drums and Butterscotch Blonde, games, raffles, moon bounce, food stands, Art at the Park kids art contest, animals from the Allegany Animal Shelter, local artists and craft booths and local information displays.
