More About Shanksville Community Picnic

The 93rd year of the Shanksville Community Picnic, sponsored by the Shanksville Volunteer Fire Department, kicks off at 4:00 PM, Friday, August 5, with the opening of the kitchen and games. At 6:30 PM there will be a parade down Main Street ending at the Community Grove. Following the parade, music will be provided from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM by "Ridgemont High", a popular Pittsburgh area band specializing in 80's rock. On Saturday the kitchen and games open at 11:00 AM with a menu that includes BBQ chicken, fresh-cut fries, homemade pie, pulled pork, burgers, dogs, sides and beverages. Games include chuck-a-luck, dunk tank, mechanical pig race, dime toss, fishbowl toss, duck pond, and a giant bouncy race. There will be a huge basket raffle and a guns and ammo raffle. Kids can try their hand with a real fire hose hooked up to our heavy rescue pumper truck. We are hoping for a visit from the Med-Star helicopter around 12:30 PM, which will then be open for tours. Beginning at 2:00 PM there will be live music all afternoon and evening including the Somerset County Community Band at 6:00 PM, culminating with a concert at the bandstand amphitheater by “Ole '97”, a Johnny Cash tribute band, from 7:30 to 10:30 PM. (Bring your chairs and blankets for seating.) All proceeds help the Shanksville Volunteer Fire Department serve the community.
