Hometown Family Fun at the Montross Fall Festival

From family skate night, to the best chocolate cake contest, to the Chandler three-mile race, to an arts and crafts show and a parade, the Montross Fall Festival kicks off this weekend.

For almost six decades, the festival has been a highlight of the fall in Westmoreland County, and this year’s event, which also features a scavenger hunt, a baby contest and a car show, looks as spectacular as ever.

“The Fall Festival is my favorite event in Montross,” said Carol Chandler, a longtime Montross civic leader who was chosen as the Grand Marshal for the parade at this year’s event.

“It is a little bit of everything that is good about our community- the food, the crafts, the families and the high school kids,” Chandler said. “I love it.”

“The Town Fall Festival has been an important event to the Town for over 60 years,” said Montross Town Manager Brenda Reamy.  “This year’s theme, ‘Hometown Family Fun’, is just what our festival is all about.”

Reamy urged everyone to “come and join the fun” at the event which begins Thursday evening and concludes Saturday night.
