The Lebanese-American community that has historically been a big part of the Easton community is getting ready to celebrate its heritage this summer.

Our Lady of Lebanon Maronite Catholic Church will celebrate the 42nd annual Lebanese Heritage Day on from 5 p.m. to midnight Saturday Aug. 3 and from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. Sunday Aug. 4. The festival will be held on church ground at South Fourth and Ferry streets, the same place its been held since the late 1970s.

The festival is free to attend and will embrace Lebanese culture with traditional food like hummus, shish kabob and tabbouleh. Eddie Ossama and Kalem Issa will provide musical entertainment throughout the festival.

This year’s installment will feature games and activities for kids, souvenir shopping and children’s ethnic dance troupes on Saturday and Sunday night. Another highlight of the weekend is a raffle with the grand prize of $10,000. Credit cards will be accepted for most food items and souvenirs.

Mass will be performed to start to celebration on both days, at 4 p.m. on Saturday and at 10 a.m. on Sunday.
