Giant Inflatables, Waterslides and Friendship Delight Families At VSBG Community Day
The Village of South Blooming Grove had their yearly Community Day, as usual with the emphasis on “community”. Known for their huge blowup inflatables, Mayor Jim LoFranco said the atmosphere both in the fields and the cool breeze under the big canopies was extremely neighborly with some families visiting throughout the afternoon. All of the inflatables had safety attendants, and one broke the record as a multilevel camo course extending almost the full length of the field. Unlike other area fairs, he said there is less emphasis on the commercial aspect and more about neighbors getting together. In fact, he said, “I personally know just about everyone who came today”. During the hot afternoon with the temperature approaching 90 degrees, the kids were all about the giant waterslide and dunk tank.
