Fall weather arrives ahead of weekend events in Boyertown, Muhlenberg Twp.

BERKS CO., Pa. - Whether it's a terrifying trip through Jim Dietrich Park transformed into a Haunted Hollow for the weekend or a variety of stringed instruments reverberating at Boyertown's Pickfest, most everyone can agree that it all just seems to go better with a certain kind of weather.

"The weather has cooled down, so it's very nice to have a fall activity," said Karen Schreiber, a Haunted Hollow organizer.

"The fact that we have wind that's blowing down our tents," said Lyn Cymella-Rich, one of many behind Boyertown's Pickfest. "We're not even complaining. It's not raining."

Pickfest, now in its 12th incarnation, will feature more than a dozen bands strumming from seven stages and more.

"We have activities for children," Cymella-Rich said. "We have an agriculture area with everything from Nubian goats. We have 28 merchants who are involved all over town."

If you don't know what a Nubian goat is, you'll have plenty of time to find out over the three-day festival.

Meanwhile, over at Jim Dietrich Park in Muhlenberg Township, it may be a fright by night, but it'll be family friendly during the day.

"In the afternoon on Saturday, we have a traditional hayride, carnival games, magic show with Magic Rich," Schreiber said.

Overall, with the "finally fall" weather, organizers are hoping everything stays dry for the duration of the weekend.

"It is a perfect weekend as long as the rain stays away," Schreiber said.
