Coming this Saturday is the eighth-annual Bloomingburg Community Day event — and all are invited.

“We were not able to have the event last year due to the pandemic (COVID-19). We are very excited to be able to hold the event this year,” explained the Bloomingburg Community Day Committee.

The event will be held on Saturday, Aug. 14 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with an opening ceremony starting at 11 a.m. The majority of activities will be located near the Village of Bloomingburg Town Hall, located at 62 Main St.

There are several activities scheduled throughout the day including a Kids Train Ride and Bouncy Houses.

A Car Show, the seventh-annual show done during the event, is planned from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will mostly be located on Cross Street.

Entertainment by “Thirty-O-Six” and “Paul Blankenship” will be provided during the event.

As for food, a variety of food vendors as well as a BPM Fish Fry will be present. Other activities will include a silent auction, several raffle items (including a 50-inch TV, a fire pit and a Blackstone grill), a 50/50 raffle, and community-wide yard sales. There will be several vendors and crafters at the event.

“We have had a great response of 25 or more vendors coming and selling their crafts and other items,” wrote the committee via email.

There will be a free drawing for two kids’ bikes, kids’ train ride and bouncy houses.

“We really appreciate all of the people that have sponsored or donated items for this event,” wrote the committee.
