WESTOVER — Saturday, April 21, the Somerset County recreational complex at 30290 Sam Barnes Road in Westover will be transformed into a fun-filled free community event celebrating wellness and earth Day when the fifth annual Somerset Community Field Day takes place 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Learn about healthy eating at the cooking demonstration. Hear live music from local school bands and local deejays. Visit the many community vendors. Enjoy face painting and more activities at the Early Childhood Section. Groove to ‘On the Edge’ band with a concert on the lawn from 1 to 3 p.m.


“We encourage everyone to come join us at this year’s event to learn and participate in the many exciting things we are doing in this county to make it easier for people to be physically active,” says Clint Sterling, Recreation and Parks director. “It is a day to celebrate not just the health of our people but the health of our earth too.”
