Color Me Spring Festival to feature arts, crafts

MIDDLETOWN – The Color Me Spring festival in Middletown on Saturday will offer arts and crafts for sale and more at its seventh annual celebration.

The spring festival will host more than 50 arts and crafts vendors, said Pam Dietrick, president of the Middletown Recreation Council, which sponsors the event. Participating vendors include one who will offer garden art made out of forks and spoons. Another sells items made out of vintage jewelry.

Attendees can also get a bite to eat and listen to music. Dietrick said the musical guests are local high-schooler Samantha Johnson and Copper Canyon Bluegrass.

Children can partake in the Enchanted Forest Scavenger Hunt, in which they can search for hidden coins and earn prizes. They can also play on five inflatables, with the proceeds from those activities benefiting Middletown’s Girl Scout troops, Dietrick said.

The festival will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at Middletown Community Park. More information can be found at

Memorial Park construction underway

MYERSVILLE – Construction for the town of Myersville’s Memorial Park at Trolley Station has begun.

The ground has been dug up at the site in front of the Old Town Diner. While digging, contractors have found some railroad tracks but not much of importance, Town Manager Kristin Aleshire said at a council meeting.

There will be paths that lead to the back of the park toward the businesses, shaping into the letter Y, with a fire siren monument where the paths meet in the center.

The town purchased the land from the Myersville Volunteer Fire Company to make the park.
