CLEARFIELD COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — Residents of Clearfield County looking for something to do this weekend can stop by the Madera Family Day event at Community Park in Madera on July 10 starting at 1 p.m.
The Family Day event was created to celebrate the people who live, work and volunteer in Madera and slowly bring the small community back to life. This is a free event for the whole family to attend, where you can check out live performances, games, contests and a fireworks show to close out the night.
“We really wanted to celebrate all he people that help our community thrive, and that’s why we started this,” organizer Becky Luzier said. “The first year we had several inflatables, lots of things happening, a big turnout. Last year we had much less turn out, everything was spaced out. But this year we’re resetting.”
Members of the Madera Fire Company and Bigler Township Regional Police will have their vehicles on display and will be having meet and greets with children.
