BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Camp Fire survivors gathered at the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds for a celebration of the community on Wednesday.

The event included a free barbeque and donations of clothes, toiletries, snacks and drinks. Free eye exams were even given at the fairgrounds. 

"It worked out really good I got some rubber boots that I really need and it's working out really good, just a fantastic facility here," said John Williams, a Camp Fire survivor. "They're taking care of us and the way the town came together it's just wonderful."

The survivors were able to gather with their communities to dance and enjoy a meal or two and come together again. 

The celebration is from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. on Wednesday, March 20. 

The event is free, however, volunteers ask that Camp Fire survivors bring identification.
