LOWER MAKEFIELD >> The township beamed with pride on Sunday as it marked the unofficial end of summer by celebrating community.
From the time the event opened to the time it closed with a dazzling display of fireworks by the Zambelli Brothers, hundreds enjoyed Lower Makefield’s Community Pride Day as the final weekend of summer breezed by.
And there were smiles everywhere you looked at Community Park, from the kids taking a whirlwind ride on the popular Gyro, to the young people competing in the 3v3 basketball tournament to the adults and kids testing their putting skills at an activity offered by the Makefield Highlands Golf Club.
Hundreds spent the day enjoying wandering musicians, watching their kids have a blast in the Fun Zone and browsing by about 30 booths showcasing many of the township’s nonprofit community groups, boards and commissions.
The event was organized by the Lower Makefield Township Parks and Recreation Department and the township's Special Events Committee.
