The Mt Laurel Fall Festival took place this year on Saturday, Nov. 4 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the town’s center.
The festival serves as a biannual showcase for local artists and as a way to promote the community. The event boasted a variety of activities including a craft fair, inflatables, live music, food trucks, a farmers market and more. A kids zone was also present at Olmsted Park.
“It’s just such a wonderful time of year in The Town of Mt Laurel, it’s a beautiful landscape,” said Codie Thoma, office coordinator at the Mt Laurel Arc Realty Office. “It’s just got a really nice feel.”
The event featured a variety of local vendors and craftsmen for locals to discover.
“We do get a lovely collection of home items, we (have) young entrepreneurs breaking out in the business as well as seasoned veterans,” Thoma said. “We are very familiar with the arts and crafts scene in Birmingham.”
Residents were also able to enjoy live music throughout the event as they traveled about the festival.
