Broomfield Days was an activity-packed weekend and an amazing time! There was fun for the whole community, with the Broomfield Day's Parade, a 5K race, clown contest, canine competitions, food booths and entertainment on three different stages. The event continued the following day with dogs soaring in the air with a continuation of the Dock Dogs event. Thank you to everyone for the wonderful Broomfield Days Celebration!
