MONONGAH -

Summer is coming to an end, and there are still a few chances to head out to some festivals like Monongah Fest.

The festival is held every year in the heart of the town of Monongah. The event began with a country breakfast in the town hall.

It brings together food booths, vendors, live music, a duck race, and games for children. The Monongah Fest staff said they try to keep everything very reasonably priced so people can keep coming back and stay all day.

There was also craft booths and the Monongah History News stand set up in the Monongah Fire Department.

The event has been going on since 1987 and brings hundreds of people back each year.

"Monongah Fest is basically just a reunion for the people of Monongah because we don't have our little high school anymore, and so the people like to come back for an event," said Debbie Vandetta, president of Monongah Fest.

The festival has fireworks Saturday evening beginning at 10 p.m., and plans to have a band play after the fireworks.

The event is open to the public, It's family friendly and admission is free.
