BERN TWP., Pa. -

Folks were out in force this weekend at the 32nd Annual Berks County Heritage Festival.

There was live music, wagon rides and even demonstrations from blacksmiths and lumberjacks.

Organizers say the lumberjacks have been a popular addition to the festival in recent years.

Officials said the aim of the festival was to celebrate our area's history and transportation heritage through demonstrations, exhibitions, music, lectures, walks, and arts & crafts.

The event is held each year at the Berks County Heritage Center at 1102 Red Bridge Road in Bern Township.
