Beginning June 6th, it will begin to look a lot like Peppermint Days in Lyons! During that week, The Lyons Main Street Program will kick off “Paint the Village Peppermint” by teaming with the Lyons Central School District and Alicia Linzy’s LEAP Program students to tie festive red and white streamers throughout downtown Lyons in anticipation of Peppermint Days. Participation in the contest is encouraged by local businesses and residences and cash prizes will be awarded to the best in both of those categories. Last year, the first place business award went to the Wayne County Employees that decorated the display windows of the county-owned Park Bakery Building on Church Street and the first place residential award went to the Pullen Residence at 69 Cherry Street. “Paint the Village Peppermint” decorations may be installed beginning the week of June 6th and the “Paint the Village Peppermint” committee is asking that you leave your peppermint-themed decorations in place through July 17th so that our “Cycling the Erie Canal” visitors may enjoy them on their annual trek through Lyons (Last year, Lyons was visited by over 550 bikers during the event and that number is expected to be larger this year!). Bikers are greeted by volunteers from the Lyons Chamber of Commerce, Village and Town officials, Lyons Youth Ambassadors and students of LCSD as well as the Lyons Main Street Program to provide water and maps of local eateries and historic sites.

Peppermint Days, a long standing summer festival that celebrates Lyons’ peppermint history, will run this year from Thursday, July 7ththrough Sunday, July 10th. The Peppermint Days Grand Parade is scheduled for Friday night, July 8th with a step-off time of 7 pm and the annual Kiddy parade and Tractor Parade will be Saturday evening, July 9th. Fireworks, live entertainment, musical theatre and a vintage/special interest car show are a part of this years’ festival. Judging for the “Paint the Village Peppermint” contest is set for Wednesday, June 28th and the LMSP is asking you to contact them should you wish to be a part of this judged promotion with your name and address so judges will not miss your entry. Downtown Lyons businesses will be sporting patriotic bunting and flags to coincide with the 4th of July, Peppermint Days and the annual Erie Canal bike trek. Let’s all join in on the fun! Get Lyons Pride!
