WEST DECATUR — The leaves are changing, the nights are getting cooler and that can only mean one thing: Autumn is here, and so is CenClear’s Fall Festival.
Everyone is invited for some family fun from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 9. The event, hosted by CenClear and the YMCA of Centre County, will be held at 5193 Morgan Run Rd., West Decatur.
This event is open to the public. There is no admission charge for this event, and it includes a variety of free entertainment like hayrides, fresh apple cider, games and lunch.
This year’s event also includes a touch-a-truck area where children can see a fire truck (11-1), ambulance and more up-close.
Vendors are also attending so mom, dad, grandma and grandpa can browse and do some shopping. Curious about how those delicious apples become a favorite fall drink? Then, stop by the apple cider-making station.
CenClear will have staff showing you how it is done and you can enjoy the sweet reward. Staff are excited to have Knotty Ray participating in their festival event.
You can watch how he turns a log into an amazing work of art, using just a chainsaw and his talented hands.
The event includes a free lunch, provided by CenClear, and this year, it comes with a sweet dessert, courtesy of the Kiwanis of Philipsburg. The Kiwanis will be dishing up free ice cream.
The autumn season wouldn’t be complete without pumpkins. CenClear will have pumpkins for children to decorate during the festival and also pumpkin bowling.
Other games lined up for the event include Fishing for Feelings, Memory Match and an obstacle course. Does your child want to try something new? The YMCA will be providing an opportunity for them to try their hand at archery.
An event is better with friends, and visitors will be welcomed by costumed characters. You will want to make sure you capture memories of the event and a photo booth will be set up to do just that.
Have you participated in CenClear’s Safety Expo in the past? This year the event will be included in the Fall Festival so that in addition to lots of fun, there will be plenty of information on how to keep your family safe.
Stop by and meet the newest addition to the Children’s Advocacy Center of Clearfield County — their furry friend Kirby.
Southbound and the YMCA’s Academy of Music will be stopping in, from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., to provide visitors with entertainment right at the festival.
