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.
