In an effort to continue the Ebensburg tradition of celebrating the almighty spud, organizers of the annual PotatoFest are encouraging local businesses and residents to participate in a “Spud Stroll” on Saturday, September 26th.
“The idea for the Spud Stroll is to still be able to celebrate what would have been our annual PotatoFest, but on a much smaller scale. This will still give businesses the opportunity to draw people in by hosting their own specials or events, and it will spread things out so that we don’t have a high concentration of people gathering in one place,” said Danea Koss, Community Development Director.
The Ebensburg Main Street Partnership has taken the lead on putting together a schedule for the day and has confirmed that they will host two Concerts in the Park that day, and extend the Ebensburg Farmer’s Market to keep it open from 9 am to 5 pm.
Businesses in the borough and the township are encouraged to join in the day’s festivities by offering sidewalk sales, outdoor dining, potato-themed offerings or tastings, events, prize giveaways, etc.
