4th of July in Pleasantville

In September of 1814, Francis Scott Key was inspired to write the Star Spangled Banner after witnessing the twenty-five hour bombardment of Fort McHenry by the British Navy.  In recognition of the 200th anniversary of our nation’s national anthem, the theme of the 2014 Pleasantville 4th of July celebration was, Dreams Come True Under the Red, White and Blue.

For the first time, the Pleasantville Chamber of Commerce awarded $500 to the group with a parade float that received the most votes in the People's Choice Category. With almost 1,300 ballots cast, the winner of the 2014 People's Choice Award and the $500 cash prize was the Pleasantville Garden Club!

The Pleasantville Chamber also hosted a variety of activities including a pet show and bag tournament. Congratulations to our winners!
