GREENVILLE, Pa. (WKBN) – There are a lot of events happening this weekend for Independence Day. In Greenville, Pennsylvania, people are taking part in Greenville Heritage Days.

Most of the events are in downtown Greenville at Riverside Park.

It is the 14th annual Heritage Days weekend. It always happens on the first weekend of July. It’s the first time since 2019 they were able to hold the event due to the pandemic.

“I’m excited just that we’re back again this year after not being here last year because of COVID. So, we always get excited about this,” said festival chairman Jean Carr.

The two-day event kicked off with vendors setting up bright and early Saturday. There’s something for everyone to enjoy, including shopping, entertainment and great food.

There is also a petting zoo, which is new to the event this year.

Saturday afternoon is the Super Cruise for all the car fans. It kicked off at noon, but car enthusiasts filled Main Street before 9 a.m.

There was room for more than 700 vehicles. Muscle cars, classic cars, motorcycles and more took part.

“Just the turn out of people, seeing people I hadn’t seen for a year and you know many of these people have been coming here for the whole 14 years that we’ve ran the show. So it’s like having a huge family reunion,” Heritage Days super cruise participant Bill Sumner said.

For those driving through, be mindful that Main Street will be closed for the event.

The super cruise ended at 6 p.m., but other Heritage Days events continue through Sunday. More events and times can be found on the Greenville Heritage Day’s website.
