HERTFORD — The annual Indian Summer Festival will kick off in just nine days.
During the two-day event, the boat ramps behind Hertford Town Hall will be closed to boaters. The area will be used for a Wheeled Vehicle Show during that period.
One new addition to the festival will be a booth by the Chowan-Perquimans Habitat for Humanity. Visitors will get to learn how to use a power drill, hand saw, wood plane and other tools.
Habitat will also be holding a raffle of dog houses that will be donated to the Tri-County Animal Shelter to help place animals in new homes.
The festival runs from Sept. 5 from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. until Sept. 6 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. A special Indian Summer Festival magazine appears in this edition of the Perquimans Weekly.
