A portion of Seventh Street will be closed in downtown Lawrence for an upcoming celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Liberty Hall building.
City commissioners at their weekly meeting unanimously agreed to close the 100 block of East Seventh Street from 1 p.m. to midnight June 22. The public parking spaces on Massachusetts Street in front of Liberty Hall, which is at the corner of Seventh and Massachusetts, also will be closed for the celebration.
The closures will allow for kids games, live music and vendor sales as part of the anniversary celebration. The event also was given city approval to sell alcohol in the public right-of-way for the event.
