Community Gathers for ‘Swamp Fest’ in Longswamp Township

For the 2nd year, families gathered in Longswamp Community Park for the annual Swamp Fest featuring Mushball, crafters, music, and kids activities.

Hosted by the Longswamp Township Parks and Recreation Committee, the event looked a little different this year due to the pandemic. All of the events were spread out in different areas of the park, and a one-way path marked in chalk was created to keep event guests socially distant.
