The air is turning brisk and the leaves are starting to fall. We are finally breaking out of humid days of summer. What better way to celebrate this beautiful change of season, than by bringing your family to the 5TH annual Turning Leaf Fall Festival at Boyertown Community Park? The excitement begins at 11:00 AM on Saturday, October 13TH and the fun doesn’t end until 6:00 PM that evening. If the weather does not cooperate, it will be held Sunday, October 14TH instead.
Throughout the entire day, there will be live bands & musicians, including Taking Motion, Black Hat Borris, Comfort Zone, Yolanda Spohn, and many more! If you enjoy sitting and listening to the music, bring a chair to make yourself more comfortable. Start and finish times for each band will vary between Oak Stage and Walnut Stage.
Among all of the entertainment are plenty of activities for the children as well. From horse & buggy, pony, and hay rides, to pumpkin painting, and scarecrow making, there is fun to be enjoyed by all! Let’s not forget all of the carnival games and a moon bounce.
Don’t forget about The Boyertown Area Historical Society’s 3RD annual Quoit Tournament. The tournament will begin at 1:00 PM. Team registration is $15.00 unless at least one teammate is a BAHS member, in which case, registration is $10.00. If you’re interested in registering your team of two, send an E-mail to the Society at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also register on the day of the tournament.
While you are there, please support the local crafters and artists, who will have many great items to browse through and purchase. It is a great way to see all of the talented people in our community and also a wonderful way to support your locals!
If you work up an appetite after enjoying all of the activities, there’s no need to worry; there will be plenty of food and drinks to go around. Enjoy some world-famous Dallas French Fries and many more delightful fall treats!
This event is a great way to get out and have some cool weather fun, before the cold days of winter are upon us, not to mention the support that it provides to our community and local businesses. We are looking forward to seeing everyone there.
