Area residents have another reason to return to the borough next Saturday (Oct. 3, 2009), too, when the fourth annual Spring City October Music and Market Festival will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. downtown on Main Street.

Sponsored by the Spring City Revitalization Committee, the festival will feature live music from bands organized by George’s Music, a downtown merchant. Other activities include arts and crafts, police finger printing for children, games, food from local restaurants, a beer-tasting offered by the Spring City Hotel, and vendor demonstrations. Admission is free.
