As if life is not entertaining enough, the fun souls in Kenneth Square hold an annual Mushroom Festival. They have a wide range of vendor and delicacies along with entertainment. We spent the day snacking on breaded mushrooms, pizza, marinated shrooms and some on a stick. This event his family friendly and is the perfect activity to do with your bestie. The restaurants are also open and offer more food choices if mushrooms are not up your alley. They average 250 vendors and over 100k visitors so arrive early to find parking.
