Today is the Day!  Fall Fest is happening rain or shine.  We have lots of tents and working on streaming the Cubs game for tonight! 

This family friendly event will feature hayrides, storytelling, crafts, face painting, a petting zoo, and a pumpkin decorating contest!  Contestants will need to provide their own pumpkin again this year for the contest.  There will also be live entertainment from the Happy Wanderers from 5:00 – 8:00pm.

Hillgrove Tap will be providing a selection of food, craft beers and wine available for purchase along with other local restaurants.  Don’t forget to stop by the WSBA table and put your name in the raffle for a gift basket full of goodies from local businesses!
