The second weekend in June has always been a big one, with several events locked in to those days. This year though, the weekend has taken on a life of its own.

You’ve got the Mifflin-Juniata Relay for Life. Then there’s that gigantic free bicycle giveaway from the Patriot Riders. The Evendale Festival is this Saturday. Can’t forget about Reedsville Community Day. Adding to the fun this year is the (later than usual) Embassy Fair.

There’s a craft show in McAlisterville, a home run derby in Mifflintown. a Strawberry Festival in McAlisterville, a Farmer’s Market in Mifflintown, even a program to learn more about bats at Poe Paddy State Park.

And, believe it or not, that’s not everything happening in Mifflin and Juniata counties this weekend. Click here for even more local events.
