CHEER’s annual Trap Pond Fall Festival will once again be held at Trap Pond State Park, east of Laurel and south of Route 24, on Friday, Sept. 2. The day will feature good food, good entertainment, and activities. It will be held from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. and include the traditional fried chicken dinner with all the trimmings served at noon. COVID restrictions in place at the time are recommended. 

Entertainment will be provided by DJ Sky Brady and others. There will be vendors representing services for seniors, raffles, and door prizes. Pontoon boat rides are available for a fee, and advance registration is required at your local CHEER center. There will also be a guided nature walk through the park. Admission to the park will be free that day.

Tickets for the Trap Pond Fall Festival are $6 for seniors 60 and over and $8 for under the age of 60. Tickets are available at all CHEER activity centers or at the festival entrance the day of the event. Proceeds from the event will benefit CHEER’s programs to service seniors of Sussex County.
