This year’s ever popular Cider and Donut Festival and Jamie’s 5K Run for Love are joining hands again with the Byram Hills Preschool Association (BHPA) Carnival for a day of unbeatable family fun. Be sure to save the date, Sunday September 17th, all through Armonk’s Wampus Brook Park, from 9:15 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“It’s just good old fashioned fun and with Jamie’s Run and the Carnival, we are engaging the community more and more each year,” noted Neal Schwartz, Armonk Chamber President. “It’s great to see how this Cider and Donut Festival has evolved over the years and become a favorite ‘must go to’ event.”
Sponsored by the Armonk Chamber of Commerce, it’s an all morning and into the afternoon time of festivities and a great cause to support.
The race is in memory of Jamie Love, a BHHS track star. Runners/walkers and fun seekers come from all over to celebrate Jamie’s memory and enjoy an old-fashioned country fair. There will be carnival rides, live music, a pie eating contest, food, cider and hot donuts from Beascakes! Local merchants will provide fun, free children’s activities.
