They came together to bask in the ambience of their much heralded Autumn festival.
Even amid unseasonably warm temperatures, patrons anxiously flocked to the 10th annual "The Gathering" by the droves on Saturday.
Held at the Trout Run Covered Bridge in Slatington, the event is a must-see attraction, according to Kelly Schaffer, of Slatington.
"I love The Gathering," Schaffer said. "We don't miss it; it's one of the best days of the year here."
Ariel Sly, of Slatington, certainly attested to that belief as she accompanied her daughter, Meadow, 3, to the event.
