The best of summer may be yet to come at the 8th Annual Kinzua Heritage Arts and Music Festival in Russell this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, August 23-25. Admission to the Fox Hill Road event is $5 per adult and kids under 11 get in free.
The festival features genuine native american crafts and non-stop country and folk music that can be heard throughout the Fox Hill Road grounds thanks to a superb sound system.
Local visitors will enjoy getting in touch with our early American history and kids can talk to a tinsmith, blacksmith, even a professional trapper while enjoying a great variety of foods and refreshments in the shady and wooded location.
