Another fun activity, the Allegheny River Fest, is happening at Betts Park on September 21. The fest is a fall festival that will have arts, crafts, food vendors, games, activities, and music, and bring attention to the beauty of our Allegheny River.
The Squire conducted an interview with Halle Kuzminski to see how she spends her summer in Warren County. Halle enjoys summer parties, parades, the Warren County Fair, swimming, car rides in the Mustang, and the Heritage Festival. The Squire asked what activities she would like to see come to Warren County. She expressed the lack of entertainment around Warren can be fixed by more car shows, ATV trails, theme/ water park, and more stores for shopping. Halle enjoys camping at Kinzua Dam and Chapman’s Dam during the summer with her family as well.
All in all, summer is a time filled with fun, excitement, and memories. Though Warren County is small, it does have many pleasurable family and friend activities happening throughout the entire summer. Go check out some listed activities, or find your own, and create everlasting memories right here at home in Warren County.
