Glenn Mead Day Set for August 9th

Horse-drawn wagon rides are just one of the many activities patrons who attend Glenn Mead Day will have a chance to enjoy.

Organizers of Glenn Mead Day are gearing up for the festival that honors the man responsible for the 50-acre park in Corry.

Glenn Mead Day is set for Aug. 9 in Mead Park with something for everyone, according to Barb Grape, chairwoman of the one-day festival.

The annual event gets under way at 10 a.m. and runs until 4 p.m.

There is still room available for crafters and any other activity that wants to join.

“We need crafters and flea marketers and anyone else interested in joining us,” Grape said.

Grape said she is planning to have a tent this year where crafters may set up their wares.

Events include a cruise-in by Street Machines Unlimited. Dash plaques will be given to the first 100 cars. The cruise-in will be set up throughout the day.

The Kiwanis will sponsor a duck race. There will also be a petting zoo.

Speaking of animals, patrons will be able to have a ride around the park in a wagon pulled by draft horses.
