Downtown Arcadia’s Patriotic Festival drew a large and enthusiastic family crowd to North First Avenue.
The July Fourth holiday kickoff included live rock music, a beer garden, food and drink, and classic cars from Carcadia. Event sponsors included Minuteman Transport, Waste Management and the City of Arcadia.
