April 13: Sears Hill Bridge Day in Downtown Staunton
The Sears Hill bridge that has been refurbished after safety concerns caused its removal two years ago will be rededicated on Saturday, April 13. The foot bridge spans railroad tracks in downtown Staunton behind the train station that houses the Depot Grille and other businesses, providing a safe crossing from the neighborhood on Sears Hill to downtown.
A day-long celebration is planned with the rededication scheduled for noon. From 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., free family entertainment will be provided for kids of all ages throughout historic downtown as well as strolling characters, music from the Stonewall Brigade Band and Hound Dog Hill, the morning Farmers Market in the Wharf parking lot, the Staunton Station Street Market, tours of the Wharf and and Train Station from the Historic Staunton Foundation, Lucas Coffee Roasters and The Bakers Dozen Donuts at the train station, specials and activities at your favorite stores and restaurants, and much more.
For a complete listing of the day's activities, check the Downtown Staunton website.
