Quote of the Day
“The dark does not destroy the light; it defines it.”
— Brene Brown
Krislund Fall Festival
Krislund Adventure Park in Madisonburg, off Route 445, will celebrate the beauty of fall at its annual Fall Festival on Saturday, Oct. 7 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The day will be full of other activities for the entire family, including carnival games, a hay bale playground, cookie and pumpkin decorating, scarecrow building, and wagon rides. Food and snacks will also be available. The public is welcome and admission is free.
Apple Butter Festival
The Waterville Volunteer Fire Company will hold its annual Apple Butter Festival on Oct. 14 and 15. Volunteers will be making apple butter the old-fashioned way in copper kettles over a wood fire, and it will be for sale. The ladies auxiliary will sell food from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and there will also be many craft vendors open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., as well as entertainment offered from 1 to 4 p.m. both days. A Touch of the Past will perform Saturday and The Bald Ones will perform Sunday. Bruster’s will be there selling ice cream. It’s all good family fun.
On Oct. 21, Bald Eagle State Park will host the annual “Punkin’ Chunkin’ Fall Festival.” Craft vendors are still needed; applications may be obtained by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or 814-571-8303 (leave a message). There will be craft vendors, food vendors, a strolling magician, a wood carver, hayrides, a pie-eating contest, mini-launchers, and more — plus the nationally acclaimed launching teams! Parking is free and so is admission. The Punkin’ Chunkin’ Fall Festival benefits Howard Volunteer Fire Company.
