46th Annual Cinder City Days underway

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Altoona (WQOW) — A sure sign of summer in Altoona – Cinder City Days is underway

It’s the 46th year of the Altoona Lions Club’s biggest fundraiser of the year, and there will be plenty for you to check out, from carnival rides and games to live music and local food. Lions Club Vice President, Michael Schrader, told News 18, Cinder City Days may be a fundraiser for the organization, but it’s really a community event.

“If I’m not mistaken, it started down the road in a bar with one of our members when he owned the bar, but it’s been going on for that amount of time with help from the community, the Lions Club and all the money we raise goes right back into the community,” said Schrader.
