Email News Alerts

Garfield whooped it up Saturday during its annual Summer Celebration.

The town was buzzing with activity - a pancake feed, citywide garage sales, parade, pork chop and corn dinner, beer garden, pie and ice cream social, kids' tractor pull and the always popular water ball fights that pitted fire departments throughout the area in a friendly competition to see who had the most accurate aim at blasting water at an overhead target.
