The beach was packed on a beautiful day at Brownsburg-Chatham Municipal Campground, where residents of the community gathered for the Brownsburg-Chatham Fête nationale celebration on Friday, June 24. Access to the site was free from 10 a.m. until the end of the evening, with beach access until 5 p.m. Music and entertainment began at 8 p.m.  A 10-minute fireworks display and a bonfire closed out the event.
