COLONIE The Greater Loudonville Association is hosting a fall festival to celebrate the season.
The festival will be held at the Pruyn House on 207 Old Niskayuna Road, Sunday, Oct. 20 from 2 to 4 p.m. Many members of the community have come together to help organize what is to be a family-friendly event.
The festival will have many activities that will appeal to kids. There will be pony rides, face painting, pumpkin decorating, wagon rides, a petting zoo and a scavenger hunt.
Faddegon’s Nursery is donating the use of their wagon and Bill Brizzell, husband of Mary Brizzell, who is president of The Friends of Pruyn House, is donating the use of his tractor to tow the wagon. All of the workers are volunteers and many are on the Greater Loudonville Association’s board of directors.
“The Greater Loudonville Association is a very positive and vibrant force in our community and this is our way of staying connected with the community and saying ‘thank you,’” said Pamela Rowley, assistant curator at the Pruyn House.
There will be cider and doughnuts offered as refreshments. The Colonie Youth Center will be running the scavenger hunt as well as the other games.
Children are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes to make the event even more festive. Last year, event drew a crowd of approximately 100 people and this year, the Greater Loudonville Association is hoping for even more people to show up and enjoy the festivities. Admission to the festival will be free.
