Plum’s second annual Fall Fest aims to keep the borough’s new family-friendly autumn tradition going.

The event is scheduled for noon to 7 p.m. Saturday at Plum Creek Park along New Texas Road, across from the borough building.

“There will be plenty of activities for all ages,” event organizer Mona Costanza said. “Last year, we held our first event and it was well attended. We expect this year’s event to be even bigger and better. This is a great, free family event and we encourage everyone to stop down and enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of fall.”

Activities include potato sack races, open-play cornhole, face painting, music, pumpkin patch, pumpkin decorating, and children’s games.

Free pony rides will be available from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Donations for the Plum Angel Fund will be accepted. It provides needy borough families a merry Christmas.

Food vendors include Dad’s Pub and Grub food truck, Oakmont Bakery, Pappy’s Gourmet and Kettle Corn, Wood-Fire Grill by Strada Italian Street Food and various craft beers.

Other groups and individuals will be selling fudge, jellies, jams, salsa and honey.

More information about the event is available at plumboro.com.

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.
