Each year families in Mercer County look forward to the Munnell Run Farm Day. Sunday marked the ninth year for the event.

The Mercer County Conservation District said there’s a little something for everybody in the family to enjoy.

“I think it’s a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. It’s educational for my grandchildren, and it’s something fun to do,” said Carol Zahniser of Hermitage.

You can also find things you won’t see everywhere. Tom Roth of Lucky Stars Alpacas brings his furry friend Thomas in every year, and he’s pretty popular.

“Thomas is our P.R. animal. He’s used to kids hanging on him and petting him and everything,” said Roth. “He does real well with all the commotion here.”

Some used the day to get a head start on their holiday shopping, while others picked up fall themed items. There were plenty of handmade craft booths on hand and also a Civil War re-enactment.

“It’s just a nice event and it’s a yearly event and each year it seems to be growing and becoming more popular,” said coordinator Christine Mondok.

More than 1,000 people came out for the event this year.
