Hundreds Attend Community Picnic to Celebrate the Village of Lyons 125th Anniversary

Hundreds Attend Community Picnic to Celebrate the Village of Lyons 125th Anniversary

Hundreds and hundreds of residents gathered in Veterans Park on Sunday to enjoy the Village of Lyons Community Picnic. Lyons hosted the event in honor of the Village’s 125th year as a municipality.

The eight hour event featured a wide range of family and children’s entertainment including Jump Houses, Local food Vendors, Live Music, Interactive Fire Department displays with equipment, a Historical Booth featuring pictures of Lyons through the years, and a special Door County Fish Boil presented by the Lyons Retirees.

Those in attendance were also able to browse a variety of historical art and photography put on display by the village showcasing Lyons’ rich history and traditions.

“This is so much more than a celebration, it is a way for us to honor the hard work and dedication that so many people have put into this town over the last 125 years, making it a place we are proud to call home,” said Mayor Christopher Getty.

Incorporated as a village in 1888, Lyons is a community rooted in rich history and it is a profound privilege for us be able to pay tribute to it, said Mayor Getty.

The community picnic is part of a series of events Lyons is hosting to help commemorate the 125th milestone.

Lyons will also be hosting an inaugural Dinner Dance Friday, November 15th at the Village Hall. Funds raised at this event will be put towards helping to restore the Hoffman Tower, one of Lyons most notable historic landmarks.
