ChesterFest returns on Saturday, Sept. 28 to celebrate its 12th year of providing a great time to meet neighbors you haven’t seen in awhile; shopping for one of a kind gifts or something for yourself. It’s all presented by the Chester Community Association (CCA), which shares a birthday with the ChesterFest.
Shopping for a unique item will be a breeze at this year’s ChesterFest. There are over 60 arts and crafts booths offering items from specialty soaps to hats and scarves. A one-of-a-kind gift or just some information on local businesses, civic groups and a few politicians can be found on your way around the loop.
This year’s ChesterFest is offering, thanks to the hard work and management of Christian Life Church, the largest and most exciting Kids Zone ever.
