A 20-year long tradition in DuBois, the weekend long “Community Days” is finally kicking off tomorrow night.
“Unfortunately, last year with the COVID protocols we had to cancel it, it was a real let down to the community but its back and bigger and better than ever,” said Ed Walsh, DuBois City Mayor.
This is one of the biggest events in DuBois since all statewide restrictions were lifted on Memorial Day.
From entertainment to the DuBois Firemen’s parade, Ed Walsh said they have a lot in store.
“We’re going to have all the good food from all the vendors, we’re going to have the bands, they’ll be comedians, clowns face painting,” he said.
Community Days is a celebration to honor the DuBois Fire in 1888.
A day after the fire, Walsh said John DuBois started the DuBois Fire Department and it’s been growing ever since.
Amid the recent lifting of statewide restrictions, Walsh said protocols will be in place, “Of course it’s outside so we’ve advised everyone to wear a mask if they so choose, if they don’t we’re not going to make them.”
Community Days will kick off tomorrow at 5 p.m. at the DuBois City Park until Saturday night.
