Autumn is upon us and if you aren't making time to find fall festivals to attend you might be missing out! I recently went to Autumn Alive! which is Quakertown Alive's fall festival. I was photographing for the festival and I have to tell you that Quakertown Alive put together an amazing event. There was a pet parade complete with halloween costumes, mummers, a cupcake challenge, a scarecrow contest, musicians, food, activities for kids, and even Radio Disney made an appearance! Many volunteers and sponsors came together to create such a wonderful event for the local community and you can learn more about this event at the Quakertown Alive! web site.
Quakertown Alive! is a non-profit organization with a mission and a vision to revitalize downtown Quakertown. This group of dedicated community members plan and create events that help to enhance the quality of life for everyone who lives within the community. If you live in Bucks, Montco, or Lehigh near the borough of Quakertown, you will definitely want to keep an eye on their events page!
