ST. JOSEPH, Mich. -- The St, Joseph Public Safety Department announced Tiscornia Beach will be closed to the public on Friday, June 21, to allow for Lest We Forget to set up their D-Day Invasion re-enactment.

The event is to commemorate the invasion's 80th anniversary.

The re-enactment will take place on Saturday, June 22, with plans to hold one at 10 a.m. and one around noon or 1 p.m.

The event will consist of pyrotechnics, landing crafts, flyovers, and reenactors shooting blanks.

Area neighbors should anticipate hearing loud sounds at these times from vehicles, planes, and pyrotechnics simulating explosions.

Tiscornia Beach is expected to reopen around 4 p.m. on Saturday.

Organizers also remind attendees there is construction underway on Upton Drive and the railroad crossing is currently closed to traffic.

Lest We Forget advises attendees to park on the field south of Whitwam Drive and west of M-63.
