Since 2004, The Reading Lions Club has sponsored and organized Reading Friends and Family Day (RFFD) as a celebration of Reading. Community members come for the food, crafts, games, giveaways, entertainment, and to learn about local organizations and businesses. In addition to the RFFD booths, exhibits, and live entertainment, there are lots of free activities: a photo booth, petting zoo, remote race cars, miniature golf course and more.
The day starts with the morning Kids Fun Run and wraps up with evening Fireworks both sponsored by the Friends of Reading Recreation. Visit FORR for more information on the run and fireworks.
