The event is called “When the Lights Go On Again,” and it is a full day of free activities to commemorate the end of World War II. Attendees will be able to view World War II era military vehicles, take part in various programs, listen to speakers of interest, and watch a tribute to USO Shows.
There will also be children’s activities for those who would like to bring the young ones along!
The commemoration will take place on Saturday, August 29 on the grounds of the Hancock House at the Ticonderoga Historical Society, and will kick off at 10:00am with a ceremony featuring a color guard from Fort Drum. The USO Show featuring talented singers, dancers, and comedians will round out the day at 5:00pm.
If you have questions about the event or would like to add the names of military veterans to the Historical Society’s “honor roll” of those who served, you should call 518-585-7868 or send the historical society
