The summer festival season is upon us and in Lyons, that means Peppermint Days! To get the village looking its minty best, the Lyons Main Street Program is once again sponsoring the "Paint the Village Peppermint!" contest. 

Beginning June 15th, the residents of Lyons are encouraged to get into the festival spirit by decorating their homes and businesses in red and white. Yes, it may be warm outside but it's time to rummage through holiday decorations to pull out red and white lights, ribbons, and bunting and locate those candy canes and peppermint disks. 

In years past folks have lit up and festooned their porches, built peppermint "may poles", crafted peppermint canes and disks as well as candy land themed windows. Use your imagination and creativity to reflect your peppermint pride! Cash awards will be bestowed upon the best residence and business entries and participants are asked to keep their decorations up until July 15th. 

To be sure that your entry is judged by the judging committee, please let the LMSP know your entry address no later than Tuesday, July 3rd by contacting the LMSP at (315) 871-4220 or via email at lyonsmainstreetprogram@gmail.com

This years' Peppermint Days festival runs from July 12th through the 15th with the Kiddy Parade on the 13th at 6 pm, the Grand Parade on the 14th at 6 pm, the "Thunder Over the Erie" fireworks display on the 14th at 10 pm and the Car Show on the 15th. For more information on Peppermint Days, please contact Dorothy Barnes, chair of Peppermint Days Committee, at (315) 946-4623.
