Live music, a dog show, and the ever-popular Chili cookoff and Pie bakeoff are all on the menu of DennyFest this fall. So mark your calendars and make plans to stop by and join in. This year’s date is Sunday, September 13th, rain or shine, for the Finn Hill Neighborhood Alliance’s annual September “swan song to summer” festival.
What else can you look forward to? As in past years, there will be kids’ activities, guided nature hikes, and a barbeque. Also in store may be tours for kids of a few of the fire engines. An eclectic variety of other events are in the works, but more volunteers are needed.
Live music again this year, more to come as we book musicians.
If you can pitch in with your creativity or ideas, please use the contact form to volunteer.
All Finn Hill residents and friends of Finn Hill Neighborhood Alliance are welcome to come and encouraged to share their talents and help. Details continue to be worked out, and plans will be announced as they are finalized.
DennyFest, always in O. O. Denny Park, will be held from 12 to 4 pm near the Clayton Rich Memorial Shelter. There is no admission charge
