Liberty officials are gearing up for the borough's fall festival on Oct. 19.

Sponsored by the Volunteer Fireman's Association of Liberty Borough and borough council, the event will begin with a parade at 3:30 p.m. on Scene Ridge Road followed by fair activities and an evening bonfire. Activities will include rides for children, vendor booths, raffles, games, food and drinks, and a DJ.

“We haven't had a fall festival for several years,” fire department president Amy Huwalt said, noting the last autumn festival the borough hosted was its centennial celebration.

Liberty council president Jane Weigand said, “We try to do something every year.”

Children are invited to wear their Halloween costumes and prizes will be awarded for the best costumes. There will be a movie on the lawn behind the fire station prior to the bonfire.

The fire station is at 900 Haslage St. More information is available online at
