This Weekend: Take a Look Around


If your weekdays move at breakneck speed, you may not have noticed that nature is in its fullest glory right now. Maybe you haven’t had a moment to breath the autumn air or truly gaze out at the mountains?


Apples are red, pears are ripe, and corn fields are rattling with that perfect brittle dance. The mountains are full of reds, golds, and browns. Do you need a moment to slow down and savor it all before it fades away?



Then take this weekend to go for a walk or a slow drive with eyes wide open and camera at-the-ready. Savor the beauty of Penns Valley… it’s good for the soul and it’s changing every moment…

Where will you wander?

Coming up: A Wonderful Weekend in the Valley

You’ll want to stay in town this weekend! Fall celebrations abound.


First, Aaronsburg is hosting its annual Dutch Fall Festival.

Shop for crafts, artwork, produce, and antiques. Treat yourself to some homemade sticky buns, soups, french fries, and apple dumplings. Warm up with a Ham Pot Pie Dinner at the Aaronsburg Community Building from 4 p.m. –  7 p.m. on Saturday evening.

Get in on the awesome vendor raffle and the local business raffle.

The Kids Corner will have FREE pumpkin painting, face painting, sand art, pony rides, and a kid-friendly music show.

FREE Live Entertainment, FREE Admission, FREE Parking. And all in support of the Aaronsburg community!


Second, Millheim is hosting its annual Oktoberfest.

Millheim’s 2nd annual Oktoberfest, hosted by the Elk Creek Café to benefit the Millheim Fire Company, will take place October 11th from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Last year, hundreds of people turned out to listen to German music, eat bratwurst, and drink Elk Creek’s fine crafted beers. This year, with support from organizations such as the Millheim Business Community, Penn College, the Central Pennsylvania Institute of Science and Technology (CPI) and Hosterman and Stover’s, the day will capture even more of the German spirit, and a larger audience.

Music by the Bavarian Stompers and the Little German Band will keep attendees entertained while they fill up on German inspired food from the blossoming cooks at CPI. Admission gets you a commemorative glass Elk Creek beer stein, and one free fill. Additional beers can be purchased on site.

What fun!

Get your oom-pa-pa on…
