We had a GREAT feature in the ShowcaseÂ Section of the Williamsport Sun Gazette. Â A huge thank you to Arts and Entertainment editor, Bethany Wiegand, for helping us get the word out there about our inaugural Funky, Fall Festival – Octofest! Â Learn about what we have happening & when at www.pajamafactory.net/Octofest2017 – Â We hope to see you there!
The Pajama Factory, 1307 Park Ave., is trying something new â€” and funky â€” this weekend with their inaugural event, Octofest. Taking place 6-10 p.m. Friday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and 7-10 p.m. Saturday, the Pajama Factory will be a place for everyone, with music, crafts, food, art and more.
According to Danielle Velkoff, head of events and business development at the Pajama Factory, the name for the event came from a brainstorming session with Kyle Huggins, Factory tenant and owner of Kyle Huggins Design & Photography. Â â€œWe wanted to find a name that represented our arts festival happening in October, but that would also embody the quirky, offbeat side of our creative community,â€ Velkoff said. Huggins came up with the idea of calling the event â€œOctofestâ€ and using an octopus as the graphics. â€œAt first we laughed, but then we realized it was spot on. Each of its eight legs representing all the different aspects of what we have happening â€” not only at this event in particular â€” but our community as a whole. It was perfect, fun and funky, just like us,â€ she continued.
