Barre is the central city of the Wyoming Valley and county seat of Luzerne County in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Founded in 1769 and formally incorporated in 1806, the city has a population of 43,123, according to the 2000 U.S. Census. The city and valley are framed by the Pocono Mountains to the east and the Endless Mountains to the west with the majestic Susquehanna River flowing through the center.
In 2006, the City of Wilkes-Barre celebrates its 200th anniversary (Bicentennial) celebration. There were several events which were scheduled to commemorate this momentous occasion over the July 4th Weekend, including a free concert with the legendary Beach Boys in the City's Kirby Park. Unfortunately, due to extremely heavy rains, the Susquehanna River crested high enough that most of the City had to be evacuated on June 28, 2006, forcing the cancellation of the events. However, the City rescheduled their Bicentennial Blastoff, their Bicentennial Parade and the Bicentennial Gala to different dates throughout August. The Beach Boys graciously rescheduled their concert and played Kirby Park on Labor Day Weekend, Sunday September 3, 2006. Mayor Leighton and the newly-created non-profit group, Celebrate Wilkes-Barre, Inc., have promised to continue the traditions created during this Bicentennial year.
