PERKASIE — The Winter Wanderland celebration in downtown Perkasie on Saturday afternoon drew quite a few people.
Hosted by the Parkercy Town Improvement Association, the celebration included a variety of children’s activities, special food and drink, and Parkercy’s first-ever ale trail.
Kids activities include winter-themed crafts at BLOOM flower co., face painting at Bucks County Brittle & More LLC, tinsel fairy hair extensions at Salon 33, and life-size paper dolls at FROX. photo shoot, Make Your Own Floral, and more. Bouquet her activity at Perkasie Florist and meeting her Mermaid Bekah at RADaKL Bodyworks.
There were several food and drink specials around town, including cheap treats and treats at Bucks County Brittle & More, wine tastings at Perkasie Florist, and hot cocoa bars at Papa’s Cupcakes and Nourish Kitchen & Catering. Papa’s Cupcakes also offered complimentary chocolate-dipped marshmallows, which were cleaned within hours. Additionally, Treasure Trove, a local antique store, had a half price sale on pewter, china, glassware, tablecloths and paintings.
A clear favorite event at the celebration is the Yale Trail, with five locations in the heart of Parkersey’s business district: Ram’s Pint House, Mystic Ways Brewing, Van Lews Brewing Company, Free Will Brewing and The Park. It was a feature. Beginning Friday, participants could purchase a drink to earn stamps at each stop along the trail, then submit a completed stamp card to receive a Parkersey Ale Trail pint glass.
The event was so popular that pint glasses were sold out at almost every stop on the Ale Trail by Saturday afternoon. However, participants can provide contact information on the completed stamp card and will be notified when additional glasses are available.
Other events include a winter food market at the Parkersey Fire Station, a make-your-own cupcake decorating event at Hersis Gluten Free Bakery, and a family storytelling at the Rise and Grind Cafe hosted by the Bucks County Free Library’s Parkersey Chapter. And so on.
