Clarion, Pa.- Thousands of Clarion residents and crafters from local and distant towns crowded into streets of uptown Clarion to participate in the 61st annual Autumn Leaf Festival Farmer’s and Crafter’s Day.
Many people fought for elbow room through the crowded six-block Crafter’s Day event. On Friday of the ALF Festival, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., jewelers, wood workers, interior designers and candy-makers alike proudly display and sell their handmade products to the Clarion Community. From jewelry made out of spoons to hand-painted and carved welcoming signs, the Autumn Leaf Crafter’s Day was a day that had many on the streets looking for hidden, hand-made treasures.
Over 30 white tents and 300 crafters filled Main Street, each tent displaying a unique product of its own. Drawing almost 200,000 people to its stands each festival, there wasn’t a chance that a local wanderer would not find an item of interest.
One of the most popular vendors were those who sold handmade primitives, like Tracy Milliron. Traveling from Oakridge, Pa. to sell her crafts, Milliron is a self-employed decorative designer, specializing in handmade primitives.
