Maj. Gen. Wesley E. Craig, commander of the Pennsylvania National Guard, will lead Latrobe's Fourth of July Celebration parade on Thursday with Miss Fourth Cristen Scifo before the day is capped off with a half-hour fireworks display.

Nearly 200 marching units from throughout Westmoreland County will participate in the parade, which begins at 10:30 a.m.

Craig, who has held the post since 2011, is responsible for command, control and supervision of Pennsylvania's Army and Air National Guard units, as well as the six state-owned veterans' homes and programs for the state's 1 million veterans.

Scifo, 17, the daughter of Anita and Joseph Scifo of Bradenville, will be a senior at Greater Latrobe Senior High School in the fall.

She participates in track and field, cross country, color guard, Students Against Destructive Decisions, Interact Club, musical productions, concert choir and French Honors Society.

No chairs, blankets or ropes are permitted to hold spaces along the parade route until 8:30 p.m. Wednesday. Any items placed before then will be removed and discarded by the city.

The finale of the celebration includes $8,000 worth of fireworks that will light up the skies over Latrobe near Legion-Keener Park at 10 p.m.
