With leaves beginning to change as autumn soldiers on, Dover Township will hold its annual fall feature, the Family Fun Fest, on Saturday.
The family-oriented festival will feature two concerts, craft vendors, games, rides, food and more.
Admission is free but festivalgoers will have to pay for some things, such as the rides, games and food.
Proceeds will go to the township's department of parks and recreation, said its director, Kristal Kennedy.
"We just have it as a community event so people have a nice thing to go to," she said. "We try to keep the prices low so families can enjoy something for little money."
Where: The festival runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Lehr Park, 3700 Davidsburg Road.
The yearly festival as been going on for about 20 years, Kennedy said.
The event kicks off with a concert by Steven Courtney and the Suitcase Musicians at 11 a.m. followed by a performance by Tall in the Saddle at 2 p.m.
Attendees can also check out the nearby Dover Township Fire Department during an open house, watch a chainsaw artist at work, mingle with barnyard animals at a petting zoo and more. Another attraction Kennedy pointed out is the pony rides.
Food items being offered include deep fried Oreos, hot dogs and other fair foods.
Chainsaw artist Heath Bender will create figures out of wood throughout the event and will auction off a couple of pieces at the end with proceeds going to the parks and recreation department, Kennedy said.
"He'll be selling two of his carvings at the end of the day when we auction them off," she said.
