Clark Mills, NY (WIBX) - Clark Mills Firefighters are gearing up for their annual fundraising event. Field Day gets off the ground this evening at 6:00 and ends this Saturday, June 23rd. First Assistant Fire Chief Walt Misiak said the event is for a worthy cause. "This is a fundraiser for us. We do it every year to raise money to buy the equipment we need. We try to get grants, sometimes we can't get them, so this is one of our biggest fundraisers so we have money throughout the year. Plus it's for the community, we have a good time doing it," he said.

He says those attending opening night and Friday can purchase $15.00 tickets  for unlimited carnaval rides until 10:00 p.m. On Saturday tickets will go for $25.00 and attendees will have access to unlimited rides from 1:00 to 10:00 p.m.
