The Town is once again excited to partner with the Somers Lions Club and Sebastian Capital to celebrate Somers Independence Day at the Sebastian Capital Urban Campus (former PepsiCo campus). Last year, the celebration was held in honor of Victor Prato, our hometown hero.
Through the generous donations, we were able to raise and donate $25,000 toward his ongoing rehabilitation.
This year we are proud to honor the World War II, Korean War and Vietnam Veterans, those who have served our country with valor and distinction. A portion of the net proceeds will go to two local amazing veteran charities: My Brother Vinny and Westchester All Stars. This year there will be an even bigger party with more food trucks, more kiddie rides and exciting bands.
Thank you to Sebastian Capital for graciously allowing the Town to use this wonderful venue and the Somers Lions and the Independence Day Task Force for all their efforts in organizing this great celebration.
The Somers Block Party is the culmination of a year’s worth of planning by a group of volunteers who spent countless hours organizing what will be an awesome event for the Somers community.
The entertainment consists of several different live bands set to play all day and evening; a variety of food trucks (pizza, BBQ, gyro’s, and more); rides/games for kids and teens; and, fireworks to cap off the night. As always, the Town will donate the fireworks; Sebastian Capital has donated the use of their facility; and, the Somers Lions Club and Chamber of Commerce have sponsored the entertainment. Tickets are $30 per car if you order online before the event, $40 per car at the door, and there are $100 and $150 VIP options.
Please note that the charge is per car, not per person so carpooling is a good idea. Also remember to bring lawn chairs! As with all Lions fundraising activities, proceeds will be going to charity.
The 2019 Somers Block Party will truly have something for everyone. We hope to see you Saturday, June 29, to celebrate Somers Independence Day and enjoy a fantastic fireworks display! Visit https://somersblockparty.com for more information.
