Join us in the hunt for antiques, boutiques and more!
All you have to do is hop in the car (or better yet, a truck with a trailer), and take a drive along Highway 50. This highway goes from coast to coast and passes right through Lawrence County. Vendors and households set up along the sides of the road, selling things like clothes, home decor, plants and antiques. Some stores participate, as well, offering special sales and discounts!
You never know what unique items you may find during this 3 day event. It is a sight to see!
The July 4th fireworks will be launched from Wilson Park this year.
In order to honor social distancing and to keep the public safe, Wilson Park will be closed to the public. Residents will be encouraged to find a location within a few blocks of the park to sit and watch the aerial firework display. There will be not be a ground firework display.
The fireworks display is expected to take place shortly after dusk.
No tax dollars will be used for the celebration; all the money raised for the celebration will be strictly donations. Anyone wishing to donate can contact Bedford City Hall to learn how to contribute. The goal is to raise $8,000.
Fireworks will be set off at the Lehigh Cement Plant beginning at dusk.

ALAN JACKSON TRIBUTE
“The man behind Legend’s Alan Jackson, is a humble soul named Doug Brewin…
Starting in 2004 and continuing to the present, Doug Brewin has been performing as Alan Jackson for the Las Vegas Legends show. Still working with a band of his own, Brewin now rocks the house as both Jackson and himself. Because for him, “being a musician is probably one of the best jobs in the world.” Brewin’s performance of Alan Jackson regularly impresses long time fans of Jackson’s work, but more than that, he leaves a favorable impression of the country music star to people new to his work. ”
