The signs of summer drawing to a close are in full swing now with the kids back in school, shorter days, and cooler nights, but that doesn’t mean the fun is over yet! Emmaus Main Street Partners will be hosting a brand new event this Saturday, September 10th, beginning at 10am, called the Farewell to Summer Festival. This is the perfect family friendly event to prove that summer’s not over yet, with highlights including live music by “Groovy Tube”, sidewalk sales, apple pie, hot dog and banana split eating contests, children’s activities and so much more!
The Farewell to Summer Festival was designed to be a day for the community to come together to take a break from the stresses of everyday difficulties like dealing with the economy, unemployment, and the housing market, while bringing about fun, community togetherness, and a stress free day for all to enjoy.
