The event will take place on Wednesday, August 10, 2016, at Mondauk Common (located on Dillon Road between Limekiln Pike and Susquehanna Road in Upper Dublin Township).
Individual events will begin at approximately 9:30 AM after a brief opening ceremony.

The purpose of Field Day is to promote good relations among local youths and the police department, as well as teach teamwork to the youths.
