Travel Haiku - Flaming Foliage Festival, Pennsylvania (United States) - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

Flaming Foliage Festival
our excitement rises with
the colours of the season

Flaming Foliage Festival
the girl dyes her hair scarlet red
for the fall queen contest

More than half of Pennsylvania, which is Latin for 'Penn's woods, ' is covered by forests. In fall, red maples flare with vibrant scarlet; sugar maples brighten with yellow and orange; and white oaks' leaves turn wine-red—all against a backdropp of evergreens including the eastern hemlock, the state tree. Visit in time for the Flaming Foliage Festival in Renovo, always held the second full weekend in October. Enjoy a parade and delicious fall treats and crafts from local vendors, and then watch the crowning of a new fall queen.
