2022 Festival is over and now we look forward to next year.

Thanks all who helped out this past weekend. Yes, we had rain, yes it was not fun…. but for those who stayed they made the best of it. We had some folks come for the music and food. I have to go up and reseed the muddy spots. Saturday was fantastic, thanks to everyone who helped to make this a great weekend. The bands as always were fantastic, the food vendors the best in town, our EMS friends Nanty Glo and Hope Fire Department, our Egyptian dancer was one word WOW, Bob betty had the magic, our guest from Simple Gifts were awesome. Our car show was a big hit. Again, to everyone and our guest, you the people of Cambria County we say thanks. Please feel free to share with us any comments you may have… PLEASE we ask. We are seeking Volunteers for next year please call 814 288 7017
