GREENVILLE — For its tenth anniversary, Greenville Day is bringing on more fun than ever before. The festivities will kick off 4-7 p.m. Sept. 27 with free hot dogs and free carnival rides for kids. Then, on Sept. 28, Greenville Day begins at 9 a.m. and continues with a community extravaganza. Activities are free for families thanks to the generosity of local businesses, the town, and community non profits.

“We wanted to make Greenville Day extra special for families in Greenville and nearby, including those whose children attend the Greenville Central School District,” says Richard Bear, who helped organize the event with Community Partners of Greenville.

Free carnival rides for kids will continue Sept. 28, along with town-wide yard sales, Bark In the Park dog costume contest, Kids Cookie Contest, Greenville Library Book Sale, Greenville Central School District Homecoming events, K-9 demonstration, Dunk Tank, pony rides, petting zoo, food trucks, crafters, Farmers Market, Business and Nonprofit Expo, music from “Side Show Willie,” Antique Appraisals, a bonfire and fireworks.

“We look forward to Greenville Day every year. Greenville is not only our home, but we have a remarkable community here.” said Bill Von Atzingen, President of Community Partners of Greenville. “We encourage local families to come and enjoy all the festivities and make memories on this special day.”
