The Ambridge Area Chamber of Commercer plans to host the 50th Nationality Days festival at the old Wright Chevrolet car dealership off Duss Avenue.
Glenn Angus, commissioners chairman, said Wright has donated their property, including their electricity, to hold the festivities.
“They (the chamber) really didn’t have a place to go because of the pending construction in Ambridge," Angus said. "Hopefully it’s okay temporarily…otherwise they weren’t going to have it.”
Essek said there will be 14 booths lined up along the Wright buildings and in front of the buildings. The entire used car parking lot will be available for parking, he added, and a shuttle will be available for festival-goers who park at the nearby Ambridge Regional Center.
“They’ve already made arrangements with Ambridge Regional for off-site parking, to bus the people down, plus the parking in the lot,” Essek said.
The Ambridge JROTC will be helping to park cars as well as Harmony police officers, who have been contracted to provide police protection.
The chamber will pay for police protection from noon to 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and are adding Harmony to their liability insurance the same as they have done in the past in Ambridge, Essek said.
Economy Ambulance services and the local fire department will also be available.
Essek said the chamber has also considered possibly doing a small parade, in which case they will need PennDOT approval to close the street.
