Three Days of Fun Squeezed Into One Fun-Filled Day
By Jill Runfola
All the typical fun of ‘Charleroi Community Days’ was packed into one day, on Saturday, June 29, 2019.

The event, sponsored by the Charleroi Borough, has typically been a three-day event that drew crowds to celebrate the Fourth of July. This year however, the decision was made to keep it to just one fun-filled, exciting day!
“We went back to the old-fashioned street fair this year,” said Jody Cheplic, Charleroi Councilwoman. “Instead of much larger professional vendors like we have had in years past, this year we have local vendors, including church groups and small businesses,” she added.
Festivities throughout the day included a karate demonstration, music by ‘DJ Jerry’, numerous food vendors, Italian Ice, performances by Mon Valley Super Stars and The Dance Loft. The evening concluded with a spectacular fireworks display.
