Children will enjoy a bounce house, face painting & other activities. One of the most popular attractions is the farmers market, with fresh caramel apples, sweet cider and locally grown sweet corn. Besides the 110 craft, farmer’s market and food vendors, September 21st is the United Nations International Day of Peace. The local group, Men as Peacemakers will have a peace activity for children and there will be peace story tellers throughout the day.
The park stage will feature live music ongoing throughout the day. Acoustic folk/rock performer Greg Tibirzi will play from 10:00 AM-noon, followed by Matt Wahl from noon to 2:00 PM and Doug Greenwood from 2:00-4:00 PM.

There is no admission fee, but a suggested donation of $2.00, with 100 % of the proceeds going to ski scholarships for needy families at Chester Bowl. Over $10,000 was awarded for the 2012 ski season by the Chester Bowl Improvement Club.
