More than 400 children attended this year’s event, which included trucks for youngsters to investigate, games & crafts, a bike rodeo, magic shows by Cubby T.

The committee would like to offer a special thank you to contributors from SeaComm Federal Credit Union and Verizon Wireless Zone, the Department of Public Works, Northern Music & Video, Sam’s Party Tents and Dan’s Plumbing and Heating.

This year’s event was made possible by the participation of local community members, businesses and organizations including the Potsdam Volunteer Fire Department, the Potsdam Police Department, the Potsdam Volunteer Rescue Squad, Bicknell Building Supply, the St. Lawrence County Health Initiative and St. Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department, Triple ‘A’ Building Supply, Graymont, the Clarkson Robotics Team, Girls Scouts of NYPENN Pathways, Inc., Canton Potsdam Hospital, the Potsdam Food Co-op Concession Stand, National Grid, Cubby T.
