North Reading welcomed home Olympian Alex Carpenter on Saturday.
The event held at Ipswich River Park featured Carpenter and her family, as well as local officials and the North Reading Fire Department.
“This is unbelievable. You know, I love this town and it's pretty cool to see a community come together like this. I know they were with me when I was over in Sochi and cheering for us so it's pretty cool to come back to something like this,” Carpenter told 7News.
