The new dog park at Penn Township Municipal Park will be a featured part of the Penn Township Fall Festival this weekend.
Now in its seventh year, the festival originally began as a commemoration of the township's 150th anniversary.
Among the musical acts performing will be Scott Blasey of The Clarks, and Doug Khorey and his Band of Broken Hearts on Friday. The Penn-Trafford Community Band, The John Kiger Band and The Igniters take the stage on Saturday.
To help promote the dog park, which opened in May, Friends of Penn-Trafford Area Recreation Commission is sponsoring the “Dog-Gone Good Day” program on Saturday, from 1 to 4 p.m. One of the highlights will be a costume contest, with a $5 registration fee per dog.
Dog owners also will be able to take their pets through an agility course or snap a picture in a photo booth.
Meanwhile, the petting zoo and fireworks are returning this year to the festival. Fireworks are set for 9:45 p.m. on Saturday.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
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 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.
