People who attended the event said it’s something that draws more people year after year.

“Any event that brings the community together, especially in Chicopee is good,” said Joshua Clark of Chicopee. “We try to have as many events like this as we can and every year the event gets bigger and bigger, whether it’s raining whether it’s sunny out, the event is bigger and bigger every year so we’re happy to do things like this.”

People were able to take part in police drill demonstrations as well as food, music, and games for all ages.
