Firefighters, auxiliary members and area residents have been chipping in to clean up the Ridgway Firemen's Carnival Grounds following the May 21 flood that ravaged the area.
Water line stains on some of the structures at the grounds shows that the floodwaters were at least three to four feet high in some areas.
"You can just imagine how bad it was with the water line that high, everything was just flooded," said Keith Mader Jr., president of the Ridgway Fire Department.
