Fall Festival Filled With Family Fun
Fall Family Festival
Saturday, October 30 – 10am-1pm
You will find extraordinary fun at the Fall Family Festival, October 30, at Russell Crossroads! We’ve made a few changes this year that we know you will love!
Bring your family out to this one-of-a-kind event! Not only will you find a working blacksmith and a grist mill, but you’ll be treated to a Pumpkin Patch overflowing with big orange pumpkins perfect for decorating at home. The kids might be challenged to solve a riddle or two in a day full of games with cool prizes, wagon rides, and pony rides. You can feed a real live camel in the petting zoo, watch and participate in the Naturalist presentation, and lots more.
You could also win cash prizes in our Blue Ribbon Canning and Baking Contests! You know what that means—dig out your favorite recipes for granny’s pickled eggs, your favorite blackberry jam, or other favorites like apple pie, pound cake, carrot cake, turtle cheesecake and others. Surprise us with your hidden talents! And, we just might have a celebrity judge or two this year!
There is a fee of $25 per family (based on a family of four), individuals are just $10, and if you need an additional pumpkin, they are just $5 each. It just gets better every year! See you from 10am to 1pm on Saturday, October 30. And please, don’t forget to bring the kids.
