Bring the children for free face painting, pumpkin painting, crafts and a magic show.

And don't forget to stop by the bake sale and dining areas for some treats. Try a “walking taco.”

The fourth annual Jefferson Hills Fall Festival, to be held on Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. in the municipal building, 925 Old Clairton Road, will include something for everyone. “Mom can shop, the kids can play and dad can eat,” festival coordinator Beverly Borneman said.

The event, sponsored by the West Jefferson Hills Historical Society, will include children's games, prizes and crafts, a basket auction and food and craft vendors.

The festival raises money for the Jefferson Hills Public Library.

Four years ago, when government funds to libraries were being cut across the state, Borneman and her daughter, Katie, started the festival as a way to support the Jefferson Hills Library financially, she said.

“We said, ‘We have to do something,'” Borneman said.

No matter the dollar amount raised each year, the biggest contribution from the event is the community support that the fall festival offers, she said.

“It does bring the community out and the community comes together to support the library,” Borneman said. “I just love seeing the kids running around laughing and having a good time.”
