It was a magical Halloween night in Pennsylvania.

The festival sure lived up to its name! There were vendors, fireworks, a costume contest, and hours of music under a Blue Moon! The venue did an incredible job of enforcing social distancing while still creating such a unique musical experience.(more…)
