The Abington Area Joint Recreation Board (AAJRB) hosted the second autumn entertainment and visual arts event at Hillside Park last weekend, the Hillside Park Harvest Moon Fest.
Held on Saturday, Sept. 28, the event featured Arts on the Dam, a variety of fine arts sold by vendors. For children, there were crafts and activities such as the home run derby and the Pumpkin Chunkin, where children got a chance to use a super-sized slingshot to launch pumpkins into a canoe in the lake.
The festival also featured live performances from Vocal Accord, Patrick Salmon Jr., Scott Asay, Charles Havira & Justin Mazur, the Common Threads Band and Take 3.
The Hillside Harvest Moon Fest was offered as the result of a collaboration of park member groups, sport affiliate groups, non-profit groups, civic groups, businesses, artists, farmers and community volunteers.
