RICHFIELD — Richfield’s Community Day celebration Aug. 10 in Richfield Woods Park capped a full weekend of activities for the whole family.

Among the family-friendly activities were Mr. Puppet, a bubble gum bubble-blowing contest, a hula hoop contest and all-day music with dancing.

At bottom, Matthew Pierson and his son Shane Pierson, 1, of Richfield, participated in the frog jumping contest, cheering their frog to a 10-foot, 3-inch jump.

Young philanthropist Giovanni Lucarelli, 8, of Bath, at left, shot a hole-in-one and won $50 that he donated back to the community day organization. 

At top, children lined up to take their turn at the fish pond game sponsored by the Richfield Branch of the Akron-Summit County Public Library.

McDermott was one of hundreds of children who have won prizes in the fishpond’s 36-year history.
