Dallas Harvest Festival is celebrating its 10th year
Event set for Sept. 16 in
and around Main Street
in Dallas Borough.
The Dallas Harvest Festival
Steering Committee announces
plans for the 10th Annual Dallas
Harvest Festival to take place
from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday,
Sept. 16 on and around Main
Street in the borough.
It's hard to believe that it’s
been 10 years since a small
group of Back Mountain resi-
dents got together to discuss vi-
sioning in Dallas. Weeks later,
an even smaller group came up
with the idea for a “street fair”
in downtown Dallas and ulti-
mately ran with the ball to put a
local festival together in a mat-
ter of weeks.
Whether through divine inter-
vention or sheer luck, the first
event took place on Sunday,
Sept. 14, 2003 and played out
without a hitch, laying the
strong foundation for the award-
winning event that continues to
bring the Back Mountain to-
gether for an afternoon of com-
munity and celebration of the re-
gion’s rich agricultural heritage.
In observance of its decade-
long tradition, the Dallas Har-
vest Festival seeks to interact
with the community in a special
way this year - a “give back” to
the thousands of people who
visit Main Street each year.
Among the planned commem-
orative activities will be “Best of
Kiss the Pig” which will pit win-
ner against winner to see who
can garner the most votes (and
the most dollars for charity). Vy-
ing for the privilege of kissing
Dallas’ favorite potbelly pig are
Dallas Borough Mayor Tim Car-
roll (2003), Kunkle Fire Chief
Jack Dodson (2006), Back
Mountain Community News
Publisher and past Dallas Ro-
tary President Lisa Pretko
(2007) and Dallas Middle
School Principal Tom Duffy
District Judge James Tupper
will announce the winner dur-
ing the festival. Meanwhile,
watch for those pink-labeled
jugs to appear in Back Mountain
businesses and vote with a sin-
gle $1 for the winner/charity of
your choice.
