The 19th annual Perkasie Fall Festival is scheduled for 12pm-4pm on Sunday October 6th.
Join us for an afternoon of fun at Perkasie’s annual Fall Fest. Our theme this year is Fall Football and you’ll find performances by the GreenJackets and HS Cheer Teams, Color Guard, and appearances (autographs anyone?!) by the RAMs.
New this year, prizes at the ServPro cornhole tournament, a wing eating contest (featuring wings by The Perk), crazy hair by Dragonflies Healing Spa & Salon, and a beautiful and interactive sidewalk chalk art installation by Chimayo Gallery.
All this plus event favorites you’ve come to know and love: the Boing Gymnastics Studio tumble track, petting zoo, pony rides, crafts, vendor fair, live music, the Grim, Biehn & Thatcher mini golf, Landis apple pie eating contest, pumpkin decorating, the Bucks County Soapstone tractor rides, Shelly’s scarecrow making, the list goes on and on. The Carousel at Menlo Park is open.
The event takes place at Menlo Park and in the town center with free buses running between for those who do not wish to walk. It’s about 1/4 mile.
