This Jan. 24, 2011, photo shows “Sesame Street” muppet Elmo posing for a portrait with the assistance of puppeteer Kevin Clash in the Fender Music Lodge during the 2011 Sundance Film Festival to promote the documentary “Being Elmo” in Park City, Utah. Elmo got a COVID-19 vaccine Tuesday, according to Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organization behind “Sesame Street.”

Cheers: As the nation celebrates Independence Day, a local festival will mark the city of Uniontown’s birthday. The Founding Day Festival, slated for this weekend, offers a number of family-friendly activities. On Saturday, the Herald-Standard has organized a free art and car show to be held between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. in downtown Uniontown. Net proceeds raised through those activities will support revitalization efforts at Marshall Park in Uniontown. The hope is that the local park, named after Uniontown native Gen. George C. Marshall, can become another centerpiece for city activities. The festival continues on Sunday at dusk with the annual Fireworks Over Fayette, a dazzling display brought to the area by the Fayette Chamber of Commerce. And on Monday at 9 a.m., the city of Uniontown will hold its Firecracker 5K Run/Walk. We hope many of you will come out to support revitalization efforts at the park and celebrate Uniontown’s founding during what’s sure to be a fun-filled weekend.
