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.
Potluck Bluegrass, featuring Luke Vuncannon and Joe Grooms, peformed pro bono. Prior to the band taking the stage, several karaoke singers and Ellerbe’s Ray Charles Lindsey stepped up to the mic.
Several families had sparklers and other fireworks to pass the time before the show.
