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.
