The 39th Annual Community Days kicks off
MINGO JUNCTION, Ohio —
The 39th Annual Community Days kicked off Friday night in Mingo Junction, but the weekend is just getting started.
Pony rides, games, train rides, food and entertainment were all part of Friday’s festivities all which are leading up to a big day Saturday, but this event means more than just fun to some members of the community.
“You know the community is hurt from the mills closing. They lost a lot of businesses, but this is one thing that brings them back every year for two days. You wouldn’t know that the town is struggling when the community days come around," says Anthony Forte, co-organizer.
The excitement and good times continue tomorrow starting with a patriotic parade at 1pm.
