Food concessions along Third Street will have mouth-watering favorites and new offerings. Along with funnel cakes, gourmet sausages, crab cakes, fresh fruit, braided pretzels, apple dumplings, and blooming onions, attendees can indulge themselves with stone oven pizza, beef sandwiches, venison burgers, specialty teas, pulled pork, kettle corn and much more.

Events this year include the band “Jack’s Back” who will be performing between 11:15 and 1:15 on 3rd St. The trio features Jack Kutz, a Boiling Springs High School alum and USAF veteran, who plays acoustic guitar and sings old country and classic Rock & Roll. During five years in Nashville, Jack reunited with fellow Bubbler and mandolin player Mike Slusser. The third trio member is local folk hero “Fiddlin Dan” Klinger. (For those who like Jack’s Back and want to make a day of it, the trio will also be performing as a part of the South Middleton Township Concert in the Park series. The music begins at 7pm at Pavilion 1 in the South Middleton Park on Park Avenue.)
 
At the Gazebo on the east side of Children’s Lake you will be able to find “Kyle Zoll Balloon Animals” from 11:00am-12:00pm. Also featured will be “Jim Hamilton’s Music Program”, where he offers what he calls a “Musical Instrument Petting Zoo” with antique instruments and Appalachian folk toys, and don’t miss the bubble machine that will be running all day on the same side of Children’s Lake.

Also on the east side of Children’s Lake, the Appalachian Trail Conservancy will be hosting events for kids and families. This year features “Is that Water Foul? No, it’s Waterfowl!”. Topics cover ducks, geese, swans and aquatic life, the interaction of humans with this habitat, and what kids and parents can do to make it healthier. Activities are hands-on and so fun you’ll forget you’re learning… so come learn and play at Children’s Lake!

Times for entertainment will be posted on sandwich boards throughout the festival and on Twitter (@foundryday).
