Akron, PA will hold its annual “Shoe-In” this New Year’s Eve to welcome in 2014.

The 2014 Shoe-In on Dec. 31st runs from 8:00PM when the street hockey tournament begins until just after midnight at the borough’s Broad Street Park.  Beginning at 9:30 this year’s event again features free food, a DJ spinning tunes, a bonfire and a hayride. A giant, lighted shoe will drop as the last seconds of 2013 tick away coming to rest back on the ground at exactly midnight.  Hot dogs with sauerkraut and condiments, cookies and hot chocolate will be served free of charge.  There will also be fire officials with an engine on hand, a DJ playing family-friendly music to add to the celebration.  Good’s Disposal Service and Ephrata National Bank are once again the event sponsors.

Shoes can be dropped off now at Zion Lutheran Church or Weiser’s Market both on Main Street or at the Akron Borough Hall or Ephrata National Bank Akron branch both on South 7th Street.

Parking is available at Ten Thousand Villages, Weiser’s Market, Stradling Funeral Home and Grace E.C.C. During the event, Main Street and Playground Alley in the area of the park will be closed to vehicles. 717-859-1244
