Anthracite, Bluegrass Festival honors the late Ricky Johnson
ANDREW LEIBENGUTH/TIMES NEWS Bill Harleman helps Dale Freudenberger with his display. Freudenberger is holding a 1902 lithograph of John Mitchell. Mitchell, aka "The Miners Champion", was the United Mine Workers President during that time period.
Hundreds of visitors enjoyed the displays and music during the Mauch Chunk Lake's annual Anthracite and Bluegrass Festival.
The festival was also held in memory of the late Ricky Johnson, who worked and volunteered at the lake for over 30 years before passing away from cancer a few months ago.
