To welcome in the season of autumn, the team at Tri-County Chiropractic, 990 East Benjamin Franklin Hwy., Douglassville, hosted their sixth annual fall festival for the community.
From face painting to massages, vendors, Zumba and raffles, the festival had something for everyone.
“Every year it gets bigger and bigger,” Dr. Christine Treacy said about the event.
“We’ve have been in practice 14 years and have seen many patients going through cancer,” Dr. Melissa Kisla said. “We support what they do and give back through Relay.”
Through purchasing tickets for games like the can toss, fish bowl, and candy fill, Tri-County Chiropractic raised money for Relay for Life.
“It’s nice to have this for the community and to get more involved,” said Dr. Sarah Cole, who is the most recent addition to the practice.
“Our staff loves this event,” Treacy said. “We are one big team. They donate their time and energy -- baking for the bake sale and working the games.”
Vendors from the area sold lotions, necklaces, and homemade treats.
A fire truck from the Ringing Hill Fire Co., Lower Pottsgrove, was open to children for a tour and photo opportunity.
Cub Scout Pack 555 sold popcorn, Outshine Dance presented a Zumba class, and Amity Township Police held free fingerprint registrations. Next Level Martial Arts was also present for karate demonstrations.
Not only did the community come out to participate in the day, but local businesses also participated in donating items for the raffle.
A moon bounce was donated for the kids and each of the vendors donated an item for the Chinese auction.
“We raise a lot of money and get to meet a lot of great people,” Treacy said.
“It’s a great thing to give back and the community is helping with that,” the doctors expressed.
The festival also ties in with celebrations of October as National Chiropractic Health Month. All new patients of Tri-County Chiropractic who mention Relay for Life at their first appointment will have a portion of their visit donated to Relay during the month of October.
In addition to their Douglassville location, Tri-County Chiropractic also has additional offices in Pottstown and Exton.
