It's a big weekend in Girard.
The annual Dan Rice Days celebration is underway. The event is centered around the legacy of the longtime circus clown.
Organizers say the celebration just seems to keep growing every year.
"I think that's what we're trying to strive for, to work with your neighbors, to get along with your neighbors," said Jeanne Miller, one of the organizers behind the event. "You can do something together, and it can work. And it can get bigger, and that's what's happening here."
A parade and civil war re-enactment are both set for Saturday.
