Alburtis celebrates 100 years

ALBURTIS, Pa. -

They celebrated all weekend long in one Lehigh County borough.

Alburtis is turning 100 years old this year, and this weekend was a three-day celebration.

It all kicked off on Friday with cake cutting and the festivities continued Saturday and Sunday with a May Day celebration out at Lockridge Park.

Longtime resident Joe Stofflet says its good to remember how Alburtis used to be and how it is now.

"I was born and raised here in Alburtis in 1932 and left for awhile and came back again after 50 years and it really changed," Stofflet said.

They buried a time capsule SunAday so future generations could look back and learn.
