Susan Williams, director of the Venango Area Chamber of Commerce, managed to pull off a modified Oil Heritage with the help of generous sponsors and a lot of sweat equity. The Cranberry Festival followed suit today.
Though moved from the traditional Morrison Park to the Cranberry Mall, there were plenty of giveaways and some activities for the kids. Dozens of cars took advantage of the drive through and several found spots in the vast mall parking lot to hang out and open up their classic cars for others to visit. Kids activities included chalk drawing and painting a car. The festival committee provided materials so items didn't have to be shared. Craft kits were also given out for the kids to take home.
The fireworks are scheduled for 8 p.m. tonight at the mall.
