Dunbar Festival Offering Something for Everyone

Kroeger, Judy, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Hundreds of visitors are expected at the eighth annual Dunbar Community Fest, which takes place Friday and Saturday, and has grown into a time for families and friends to reunite.

This year's theme is "Celebrating the Dunbar American Legion," which marks its 85th anniversary. The Legion will hold a celebration at 3 p.m. Saturday.

The festival kicks off Friday night, with an extra event, free bluegrass at 6 p.m. under the entertainment tent. The Dunbar Boys, the Wash House Band and others will perform.

The Legion will sell hot dogs during the concert and tickets for a cash drawing. "It will be a nice chance for people to enjoy the music," said Cindy Moag, chairwoman of the festival committee.

In addition to the Friday concert, there will be a dedication of a garden in memory of longtime councilman Bill Watson, who passed away this year.

"We're dedicating Billy's Garden by the town clock during the parade," Moag said.

Traffic will be restricted from Franklin United Methodist Church to the Dunbar Presbyterian Church. Connellsville Street will be open to traffic, except during the parade.

Local churches and civic organizations will sell a variety of food, including hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken, fish and chips, baked beans, soups, salad, cabbage and noodles, Italian favorites and more. Desserts include funnel cakes, ice cream and fried dough.

Crafters and flea market sellers are welcome, at $10 per space. Call 724-277-0589 to register.

The Dunbar Historical Society will have its education center open and will sell its new book, "Dunbar," part of the popular "Images of America" series by Arcadia Publishing. The society's 2009 mug also will be for sale.

The Dunbar Library will have a book sale, a 50/50 ticket sale and a basket raffle.

The Franklin United Methodist Church will hold a quilt show, and the Dunbar Presbyterian Church will mark its 135th anniversary and host the Fort Pit Hi-Railers RR Club display of O-gauge trains, as well as hold a basket raffle.
