42nd Annual Lyons Good Old Days

Saturday, June 30 | Sandstone Park

The Lyons Good Old Days Celebration is an occasion to celebrate the rich history of the town and enjoy the people, places and activities that makes Lyons such a special community. Good Old Days is a longstanding, highly anticipated outdoor community event that has it all. 

This year's festivities include annual favorites, such as the car show, live music, and a performance by Mayama, along with exciting new additions! Throughout the day, Dizzy's kids area will host an array of activities, with face painting, balloon artistry, artisan vendors, games, and live music happening during the excitement. The Town is pleased to announce this year's musical performances, which include Jeff and Paige, beginning at 2p for the kids, and Joe Kuckla and Irons in the Fire wrapping up the evening, among other talented artists. And finally, it wouldn't be Good Old Days without honoring Lyons' heritage, through special programs and presentations by Mrs. LaVern Johnson and the Redstone Museum.
