McAutumnFest to make up for McCandless’ rained-out summer event


Torrential downpours on Sept. 8 washed out McCandless’ annual end-of-summer festival.

But there’s always another season to celebrate.

A fall event, dubbed McAutumnFest, has been scheduled as a make-up for the canceled Community Day.

McAutumnFest will be held from 1 to 7:15 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 20 at the town hall. The event will feature vendors, crafters, performances and activities for children.

A car cruise will be be held from 2 to 6 p.m. along Blazier Drive and the McCandless/Northern Allegheny Heritage Center will be open from 1 to 5 p.m.

The event will end with a fireworks show at 7:15 p.m.

A shuttle will run to the former Trader Horn parking lot, where free parking will be available.

The town also is seeking vendors and crafters interested in participating. No entrance fee is being charged for vendors to set up booths.

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.
