Thousands flocked to Maddenfest 2015 on Friday and Saturday at Brentwood Park. The event once again featured a fireworks display, nightly concerts, free carnival rides, a petting zoo and over 50 vendors of food and other products. The weather certainly helped, with clear skies and temperatures in the 70s.

A new addition was the kids’ tent, where children were entertained by Nitro Joe’s Science Show, Juggling Jeff and characters from the movies “Frozen” and “Beauty and the Beast.”
