Labor Day weekend is right around the corner and it has been another great season here at Laurel Highlands River Tours and Outdoor Center. But, it’s not over yet… And there’s lots of fun stuff to do in Ohiopyle to celebrate the holiday!
Music in the Mountains festival will take place again in the Ohiopyle State Park on Saturday and Sunday from 12 noon until 8pm. The festival will feature craft and food vendors all along the river from the bridge at 381N down to the Ohiopyle Falls. Homestead Days will also take place in the Falls Overlook area with interpretative programming including bow drilling, leather tanning, native American wigwam, wool spinning, old fashion games and chores, cider pressing, log hewing and more.
Saturday will also feature live music by Che Zuro, Bill Springer, and The Allegheny Drifters from 12pm – 8pm. Sunday the music starts again at 12pm with Van Wagner, and will continue all day with other musicians from Southern Comfort and Ferncliff Collective. The Ohiopyle State Park will also be lighting the Ohiopyle Falls Saturday evening from dusk until 10pm.
The Friends of Ohiopyle annual photo contest will also be taking place. Photographs will be displayed at festival both Saturday and Sunday. Final photography submissions will be viewed and judged by park staff, and members of the Friends of Ohiopyle.
