Liberty celebrates fall with festival
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 www.lbvfd.info.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
