ELLERBE — Hundreds of people gathered Monday evening for the Ellerbe Lions Club’s annual 4th of July Jamboree.

The event is a fundraiser for the club, but has been canceled the past two years due to COVID concerns.

Before the sun went down over the horizon, children got their faces painted and ran around the playground.
