Food lovers can purchase fresh produce from the more than 100 farm market vendors present at the Festival.

Back by popular demand, both Friday and Saturday, is the giant fry pan, featuring the “Cranberries Jubilee” – served over ice cream.
The Festival is topped off on its final day with a gigantic parade, held on Sunday. The parade features several marching bands from the surrounding areas, as well as numerous special guests.
