“Cranberry at Your Service,” a showcase of local government services, provides an opportunity to go behind the scenes to learn what Cranberry’s operating departments do for the Township and how they go about doing it. At stations spaced throughout the Municipal Center, each of the Township’s departments – Public Works, Public Safety, Administration, Parks & Recreation, Engineering, Codes, Information Technology and Customer Service – will have representatives on hand to answer visitors’ questions, along with displays, tools and work demonstrations.
In the back parking lot, Township vehicles will assemble for Touch-a-Truck – a hands-on experience with Cranberry’s fleet of specialized mobile equipment. Among the work vehicles on hand: an aerial fire truck, a 20-ton dump truck, patrol cars, an ambulance, a garbage truck, a front loader, a golf cart and more.
“Folk & Food Festival,” a presentation of the Cranberry Area Diversity Network, was a huge attraction in 2015. This year it will again celebrate Cranberry’s ethnically and culturally diverse population. Presented by the Network and the Township, together with the Cranberry Public Library and the Butler County Tourism and Convention Bureau, the Folk and Food Festival will feature culturally distinctive entertainment by residents of the Cranberry area drawn from six different continents as well as other diverse populations in the region. Presentations will be held at several sites within the Municipal Center.
An assortment of authentic nationality foods will be served inside the gym. Entrée-size portions will be available from kiosks for prices set individually by each booth vendor.
There is no charge for parking or admission to either CranFest program.
