LEOMINSTER — The annual Starburst celebration is being postponed one day to this Sunday due to the severe weather forecasted July 29 but organizers say the event will still begin at 4:30 p.m. and end with fireworks at 9 p.m.
The festivities Sunday will be held at the original location as well, Doyle Field, and will feature entertainment from Neurotic Gumbo with Scott Babineau opening. Food will be available through local vendors and the presentation of this year’s Citizens of the Year will honor longtime residents Angela Wallace and Carl Piermarini.
Both residents receiving the Citizen of the Year award have spent their lifetimes making Leominster their home and will be honored during the 30th anniversary of the event.
“Both recipients have exemplified the true meaning of what it takes to be a Citizen of the Year,” said Nancy Koski, co-chair of the event. “Love for the city they reside in, giving back unselfishly to that community, and not expecting any type of accolade in return.”
