Due to weather, "Light Up Middlefield" will be an indoor/outdoor event moved to the Middlefield Community Center. Lion's has cancelled the bonfire but will still have food and most of the activities and contests. The P&R has cancelled the bounce house but will still have the outdoor hanted graveyard candy hunt, a smore's roasting station, (and hayrides if there isn't too much snow).
