Holy smokes, I just realized today that the Fall Festival is coming up this weekend! Is it really that time of year already?
Anyway, it’s this Saturday and Sunday, October 6 and 7. Downtown Bend, the streets are closed (Oregon, Minnesota, Wall, part of Bond?), and the usual seasonal festival attractions will be there: Artists and vendors, the Souk de Fall Fest, music stages, food court, beer and wine garden. The Family Harvest Area will feature a hay maze, apple bobbing, pumpkin painting and carving, and the like.
Festivities start at 11am on both days, and there’s the Official Event Guide insert in today’s paper with details and the map.
