It may be two separate towns, but it’s one day to celebrate a great community.
Chester Day is finally here and is set to take over Main Street in Chester Borough on Saturday, May 10.
What would a great community day be without a parade? A “home town” parade will weave its way down Main Street at 11 a.m. to go along with activities, music, and an old-fashioned picnic lunch as the day goes along.
The annual vintage baseball game will be played and a 5K race sponsored by the Educational Foundation of the Chesters will be run as well.
The day is more than just fun and games, however, as volunteers are being sought for clean-up service projects as well.
Main Street in Chester will be closed from 9 a.m. to noon, according to Chester Borough Police Chief David Jara.
Sign boards have been placed near Cole Court and on West Main Street to alert the public in advance of the event. Main Street will be shut down between Seminary Avenue and Church Street, Jara said. Detour signs and police officers stationed throughout town will be assist motorists and pedestrians with directions.
