The Emmaus Main Street Partners have spent the past few months planning for the end of summer celebration. When we say goodbye to one season, we say hello to another…AUTUMN! Come celebrate the turning of the season with your friends, family, employees, coworkers, and strangers on Saturday September 21, 2019 from 11am-4pm. There will be entertainment for all ages ranging from henna and facepainting to alcohol served by Triple Sun Spirits and Colony Meadery to children’s activities hosted by Active Learning Centers to vendors selling jewelry, home décor, clothing, and more.
Like most years, we’ll have a trail for guests to visit our local businesses. For the first time, we’re going to extend the trail beyond the day and time of the event. The Scarecrow Trail will start at the beginning of the festival. Guests can pick up their passports at the EMSP booth on the Triangle. They then have until October 19 to collect stamps from the participating businesses. They’ll be able to return their completed passport to EMSP on the day of the Halloween parade at their booth at Emmaus Run Inn.
Entertainment will be St Ann’s children’s choir, Don Cunningham & Associates, and an Improv Comedy group.
The Emmaus Arts Commission will be hosting Chalk the Walk where artists will decorate sidewalk squares and then the public will vote on their favorite. They will be located around Emmaus Jewel Shop, Lifestyle Barbershop, David’s Italian Market, and the Triangle.
A public restroom will be located behind Licensed 2 Grill in their parking lot.
There will be Taste Smokers, Licensed 2 Grill, Bodega Bistro, and Mon & Mel’s Sweet Scoops food trucks.
Triple Sun Spirits will be selling drinks outside 326 Main St at Total Health and Sport Care. Colony Meadery will be selling alcohol outside of Your CBD Store on the Triangle.
