NEW BERLIN – New Berlin will celebrate its 49th annual Youth Days this weekend. The fun starts with the Miss Youth Days Pageant on Thursday, followed by fireworks and midway rides Friday, a child’s fair and parade Saturday and a food drive with a bike give-away on Sunday.
On Thursday, Youth Days kicks off at 6 p.m. in the Unadilla Valley High School auditorium with the Miss Youth Days Pageant and presentations of the ‘Youth of the Year’ and ‘Citizen of the Year’ awards.
The event is sponsored by the New Berlin Youth Days Committee and is organized by Sheila Randall.
“We hope the community will come show their support Thursday night as this year’s Youth Days gets into full swing. We’ll be announcing the Youth and Citizen of the Year following the first round,” said Randall.
The rest of the community carnival takes place through the weekend on the grounds of Milford Academy in downtown New Berlin on South Main Street.
Friday marks the opening of several main attractions, including the food booths which open at noon and midway rides that begin at 6 p.m.
