With so much going on at Richland Community Day on Saturday, the question is: Where do you begin?
Festivities begin at 2 p.m. and last until fireworks end at Richland Community Park on Van Velsor Drive in the Bakerstown area of the township.
The smash car event, CMC express train, battle of the barrels, and inflatables will be set up all day.
So will the petting zoo and hayride.
Giggles the Clown will make balloon creations inside the barn. Stepping Stones Activity Tower of Bubbles will go on outside the barn.
Ronald McDonald visits from 4 to 5 p.m. and Steely McBeam makes an appearance from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
All kinds of food will be on sale in the Midway area—fries, gyros, pulled pork sandwiches, burgers, haluskis, pierogies, hot sausage sandwiches, chicken fingers, deep-fired Oreos, cotton candy, kettle korn, frozen yogurt, funnel cakes, pizza and more.
Looking for contests?
At 4 p.m., Buffalo Wild Wings is holding a wing-eating contest on the stage.
You can cool off with the ice cream contest at 5:30 p.m., which is sponsored by Donut Connection & Kaleidoscoopes outside the barn. You must pre-register for this event on the top floor of the barn.
