Parades and Potato Pancakes Bring the Community Together
On Thursday, July 25, the Clifford Township Volunteer Fire Department kicked off their 71st Annual Firemen’s Picnic. This three-day carnival is a major fundraiser for the fire department. The proceeds cover operating costs as the firefighters are on the frontlines, keeping Susquehanna County safe.
Fire trucks, high school bands and street performers led a parade through town. The fun continued at the carnival, where the community came together to enjoy live music, children’s rides and delicious fair food.
If you missed the parade, there’s still plenty more fun to go around. Visit on Friday for a fireworks show at 10 p.m. The festival closes on Saturday with a chicken barbecue at 5 p.m. and fireworks at 9:30 p.m. They’ll also draw the lucky winners for the Clifford Cash Raffle, where they’ll give away up to $147,500 in cash prizes.
