This Saturday is Galena Summerfest, and that means the streets surrounding Galena Village Square will be closed to vehicular traffic from 8 a.m. Saturday to midnight.
Closed will be Park Street from Middle Street to Walnut Street; Walnut Street from Harrison Street to Columbus Street; Columbus Street from Walnut Street to Middle Street; and Middle Street from Columbus Street to Park Street.
Roads coming into Galena, such as Sunbury Road and South Old 3C Highway, will be detoured around the village.
Emergency access will be maintained around South Walnut and Front streets and West and Water streets.
Boy Scouts will help park cars at several sites near the center of the village.
Festival-goers may also park at Galena United Methodist Church on Sunbury Road and ride a free shuttle into the village; and a 55-passenger air-conditioned coach will provide free shuttle service between Galena Summerfest and Sunbury Sizzle & Sounds.
