MIFFLINBURG — October 12 marked the seventh annual Kelsey’s Fall Festival. Thanks to over 400 dedicated volunteers, it was the most successful festival to date. Along with a record setting 430 quarts of apple butter, other classic favorites such as musical entertainment, adrenaline rush inflatable, hayrides, blue barrel tractor rides, Elmo and Cookie Monster characters, crafts, games, and prizes galore, the cake wheel, apple cider, and other delicious treats delighted festival goers once again. Ashburn’s Animals petting zoo and the dunk tank were consistently crowded with kids ready to feed a furry friend or see a local celebrity get soaked.
The Mifflinburg VFW fairground was blessed with warm, October weather. The sun beamed down after the balloon release commemorating Kelsey’s 20th birthday. This event alone made attending the festival worthwhile. Pictures truly cannot do this moment justice.
Kelsey’s Dream welcomed the newest member of the team, Hopper The Cancer Crusher.
