Lewisburg comes together for Fall Festival

Ellie Lowe, Contributing Writer

Over Fall Break, while many University students went home leaving the campus quiet, the town of Lewisburg came alive at the Lewisburg Fall Festival.

On Saturday, Oct. 12 from 12-5 p.m. over 400 people gathered at Hufnagle Park where Lewisburg hosted its Fall Festival. Booths were lined up and down 6th street selling anything from artwork to Halloween costumes and even wine jelly. Local restaurants were there serving food and drink and the music group Blue River Spell provided live music. 

A big event for the festival was the unPAved gravel road bike race which brought hundreds of bicyclists to the event. The Lewisburg Downtown Partnership even moved the festival’s date back to coincide with the bike race.

The Lewisburg Children’s Museum was also in attendance. They had a Wooly Worm-themed booth where they had a “petting zoo” and other Wooly Worm themed activities for children. There was also a bike rodeo for younger cycling enthusiasts. 

“There were many different kinds of vendors the most popular being homemade crafts which I loved,” Maddie Hamilton ’23 said.
