These cats are not feral. They are well taken care of by an owner on Walnut Street . . .
Fallout from the mayfly invasion . . .
(Maybe someone couldn't find their keys.)
Looks like Union Station Grill is getting a facelift . . .
A few weeks ago he was doing the same thing in another area of the park, as shown HERE.

A creature that seems more myth than mystery, and sounds like a miniature Bigfoot, will be the centerpiece of the Albatwitch Festival from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 26, in Columbia, Lancaster County.
Sightings of the albatwitch - reportedly a very slender, 4- to 5-foot-tall, ape-like creature covered in reddish-brown hair - date back 400 or 500 years to the Susquehannock Indians.
