Despite intermittent heavy showers, people were on hand to help celebrate Clare’s Summerfest last weekend.
Hundreds showed up for Witbeck’s annual free picnic and the teddy bear races went on between showers.
Audience member enjoyed several gospel singers’ groups and later it was standing room only for the Gateway Community Band concert in the Shamrock Park pavilion.
The rain held off for the annual fireworks over Shamrock Lake at dusk and the weekend wound up Sunday morning with the annual fly-in pancake breakfast at Clare Municipal Airport.
