So, with the small admission price of just $3, which includes an all-day ride pass and free parking in the park lots, come and enjoy yourself at HarvestFest only at DelGrosso’s Amusement Park.
Tom Riley sums it up best with this, “The social aspect is what really makes it fun. They come to eat, they come to shop, they come for the entertainment, and they come to see each other.” Simple, but always true.
