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 years date is Sunday, September 9th, 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.

Today’s FHNA is a little like the chili cook-off and pie bakeoff contests it sponsors ever year at its annual Denny Fest festival—all homemade, using natural ingredients made from scratch. The same grassroots spirit that pervades Denny Fenny started years before with DCNA’s Community Pride day, later renamed to Woodlands and Waterways Day. Then, as now, the festival stages local musicians, art shows, and exhibits, a barbeque picnic, and arts and crafts activities for kids and their parents and friends. View the DennyFest2012...read more
