Downtown Arcadia let the good times roll at this year’s Patriotic Festival on Saturday, with a giveaway of prizes from local merchants. Braving the sizzling heat, hundreds turned out for the fun and a chance to win valuable prizes.
The event on First Avenue in Downtown Arcadia included live patriotic music, a jam session and plenty of free, fun activities for the kids. Patriots feasted on Burger Barn BBQ and beat the heat with a beer garden for the big kids (21 and over).
