NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. — Jen's Community at Wildcliff (JCW) in New Rochelle celebrated its 2nd annual Harvest Fest to raise money to renovate the building while offering children a chance to experience music, art and animals.
JCW co-founder Marie Inzinna said the Harvest Fest follows the vision of Clara Prince, who gave the building to the city in 1940 to preserve the space for children, nature and animals. Inzinna said the festival brings Prince's vision to life with everything from music to arts and crafts to pony rides.
"This is a historical place," Inzinna said. "It really gives you a breath-taking magical view of Long Island Sound."
Inzinna said JCW earned non-profit status in July, and part of the festival was to celebrate that and raise funds to remodel the building to accommodate children's programs in the future.
