Venango Area Chamber of Commerce president Susan Williams decided the best way to hold a modified version of the Cranberry Festival in 2020, due to the many shutdowns around COVID-19, was to have it at the Cranberry Mall. This continued this year with an expanded version (and few restrictions) with plenty of room for the car show and many vendors. Stages for music were set up and, as the members of High Above 80 said, there was a large dance parking lot for the many listeners.
The weather was also perfect.
Here are a few photos from early Saturday afternoon.
For Your Car Connection, an annual big supporter of the festival, offered up a car for the kids to paint and draw on, always a popular part of the festival.
Dozens of vendors were able to spread out together in one section. Lots of food and craft choices as well as information tents with the services available to folks around the county.
And as always, the popular car show brought dozens of classic vehicles to be gawked at and envied. (By the way this photo was making me chuckle as I took it. I love to see these fun moments in time that really tell us a little bit about life and how fun it can be.)
