Changes coming to weekend Kipona celebration

Soccer and basketball will close a portion of Front Street in Harrisburg this holiday weekend.

The annual Kipona festival runs Saturday through Monday. This year, it’s mostly on City Island. However, Front Street from Forster to Walnut will close Friday morning at 9.

A three-on-three basketball tournament will be held right in front of the YMCA. It’s hosted by Susquehanna Township native and Harlem Globetrotter Chris ‘Handles’ Franklin. That takes place Saturday and Sunday.

Fireworks are Sunday night at 9-30. On Monday, a soccer tournament will be held on Front Street.
