The small community of Ivyland will hold its first-ever Ivyland Day, Saturday August 25th from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The rain date will be Saturday, September 1st.
Ivyland Day, which is being coordinated through the borough’s park and recreation department in conjunction with the Ivyland Presbyterian Church, promises to be a fun-filled time for young and old, featuring plenty of free games and crafts for kids (including a dunk tank and live entertainment). Other activities include an art show featuring local artists sponsored by the Ivyland Art League. The Ivyland Fire Department will have its mobile communication vehicle on-site and will be selling hot dogs and sodas. And, members of the Ivyland Presbyterian Church will be selling their famous Ivyland Peach Platters. Fresh peaches will be available for purchase as well.
“I invite visitors to join us in the lead-in for the biggest celebration for the 2nd smallest borough in the state of Pennsylvania.” says Salvatore DiPaolo, Borough councilman for Ivyland Borough. “Ivyland will celebrate its 140th anniversary in 2013 and we’ll be throwing a really big party then to celebrate little ole Ivyland.”
The Borough of Ivyland, Bucks County, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Dating from 1873, Ivyland is believed to be the first planned community in Bucks County.
