Lansdale Founder’s Day – with Fireworks!
August 24, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 9:30 pm
A weekend packed with fun, food — and fireworks!
Discover Lansdale is happy to again be hosting one of the town’s biggest annual events — Founders Day 2019, on Saturday, Aug. 24, this year honoring Lansdale’s Park System in memory of longtime Parks and Recreation chief Carl Saldutti. The theme: “Relax. Play. Swim”
As always, the day will kick off the morning with Lansdale’s Festival of the Arts in Memorial Park, and wind up the evening with a spectacular fireworks display.
And this year, thanks to the New Hope/Ivyland Railroad, with the cooperation of the Pennsylvania Northeastern Railroad and SEPTA, we will feature a weekend’s worth of steam engine excursions! They will be bringing their New Hope Railroad No.40 steam locomotive for a series of trips August 23-25.
Come back to this page or visit Discover Lansdale on Facebook for more details as they are set.
Expect a ton of excitement, entertainment and surprises — and capping it all off, once again, watch for our Fireworks Spectacular!
