YARDLEY BOROUGH >> The riverfront borough of Yardley will celebrate the last weekend of summer by playing host to Harvest Day on Saturday, Sept. 21 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The free late summer street festival - a longtime and treasured September tradition in the borough - will unfold along Canal Street, East College Avenue, South Bell Avenue and at Fitzgerald Field.
Offering something for everyone, the family-oriented event will feature more than 100 booths spotlighting local artists and crafters along with civic and business groups.
In addition, live music and entertainment along with food vendors and kid-friendly activities will be located at Fitzgerald Field on the banks of the Delaware River and in the heart of Harvest Day activities.
This year’s food vendors include Fresh Fruit Cup, Local Harvest Pizza, Dutch Magic, J-Dogs, Chuckwagon Soda, Sherri’s Crab Cakes, RitchieLou’s Food Service, the Little Sicilian, Riceballs, Best Darn Kettle Korn, El Tlaloc, Creative Cakes by Carolyn and Yardley Ice House.
And don’t miss all the fun taking place around the town on Harvest Day, from store specials to sidewalk sales.
Stop by and say hello to the local firefighters who will be in front of the Yardley-Makefield fire station at South Main Street and and West College. And take a $5 canoe or pedal boat ride around Yardley’s picturesque Lake Afton in support of the good works of the Friends of Lake Afton.
And in the evening stay around for the third annual spaghetti dinner taking place from 4 to 8 p.m. at American Legion Post 317, 215 South Main Street, Yardley.
Presented by the Bucks County Business Connection, the dinner benefits the Garden of Reflection, Pennsylvania’s official 9-11 memorial. Tickets are $20 for adults, $10 for children ages 6 to 12 and free to children under five. Tickets include dinner, cash bar, music, 50/50 raffle and more.
