The Penn Hills Parks and Recreation Department is throwing an inaugural themed party this weekend.

Autumn in the Hills will be a bash for adults age 21 and older from 4 to 8 p.m. Oct. 20 at Penn Hills Community Park, 120 Colorado Street.

Parks Director John Scaglione said the event will be free admission but there will be food trucks, along with a selection of beer, hard cider and wine with the purchase of a “festival glass.”

He said the event will also include axe throwing, inflatable battles, corn hole, pumpkin decorating and gambling.

Weather permitting, the event will be capped with a screening of the 1985 cult classic film, “The Goonies.”

“It’s looking like it’s going to be cold and rainy though,” Scaglione said. But if the weather allows, the movie will start around 9 p.m., he said.

“This is our first one,” Scaglione said. “It’s a beautiful park. And this time of year it’s really nice down there. So we thought we’d take advantage of this time of the year.”

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
