Kids will have the chance to earn tickets for prizes by playing games such as pumpkin bowling, pumpkin pop, milk bottle baseball, ladder toss and many more. Activities for adults and kids alike will include games such as ladder ball, corn hole, and horseshoes.
In additions to the games there will be an obstacle course that kids can race through, a bounce house to jump in, and photo booth to capture the day’s memories! Food and kettle corn will also be available for purchase!
Other activities will include the popular pumpkin seed spitting contest for all ages as well as scarecrow contest. Participants can either build their scarecrow ahead of time or at the festival with materials supplied. Prizes will be awarded for the ‘Most Frightening,’ ‘Most Traditional,’ and ‘Most Humorous’ scarecrows!
Back by popular demand, entertainers CirqOvation! With interactive stilt walking, a living statue, and fire manipulation this dynamic duo are sure to entertain the crowds throughout the day!
While the kids are playing, start your Christmas shopping early! Across the street at the Town Hall local vendors will be selling their handmade American Wares starting at 10am. Enjoy a selection of gifts and crafts. Admission is free.
Fall can be an unpredictable time of year, sometimes cold, sometimes warm. We’re prepared for both! On a cool October day warm up by the large fire pit or grab some warm drinks and food from our food and beverage vendors. If it’s rainy we will have as many of the activities as possible under a large tent.
