The Talleyrand Fall Fest was held today in Centre County, hosted by the Bellefonte Sunrise Rotary Club and downtown Bellefonte Inc. It took place at the Talleyrand Park in Bellefonte after having a scaled down drive thru event last year because of COVID, of course.
The all day event began late this morning, with the Children’s Halloween Parade starting at Bellefonte Area Elementary School and making its way downtown through Bellefonte, families could get prizes for their Halloween costumes judged in different categories.
The annual tradition also included plenty of children’s activities, food vendors and arts and crafts, along with wine tasting and hay rides. And organizers say the Belfast Sunrise Rotary Club will use the money that was raised today benefit local parks and non-profits.
“Things like Halloween, where we have traditions or on trick or treating and getting out together, remind us all what we’ve been missing the last two years as we’ve been practicing COVID safety protocols, which is being with one in each other, having opportunities to engage with people you don’t know or seeing your best friends and their kids.”
And that’s what parks give us. That’s what days like today give us. And new this year a tent with a big screen TV for visitors to watch college football.
