One of the local fun activities my family looks forward to each year is the Glenburn Community Festival.

Food, games, music, and fireworks are all in one spot where the kids can run safely, and you're bound to bump into someone you know.

The year's festivities will kick off Saturday, June 17th at 9 AM with a "Hot Rod & Rat Rod" show at the Glenburn Elementary School, 991 Hudson Road.

Preregistration is at 8 AM and it's $5 per car to join.

According to the Facebook Event Page, there will be no shortage of activities for you and yours to partake in.

A Craft Fair will also be starting up at 9 AM, with fun for the kiddos will starting up after that when the cornhole competition starts, and the bounce house opens for the day.

There will be plenty of food and games to take part in that day.

And to finish the night off, there will be a fireworks display at dusk.

As someone who has been to the festival several times, I can tell you, that this is not a rinky-dink display; It's pretty impressive.


So dress for the weather- grab your family, a lawn chair or blanket, some sunscreen, and some bug spray, and get ready for an afternoon of memory-making at the Glenburn Community Festival.
