Livingston Centre Historic Village to hold Fall Fest on Saturday, Sept. 30
By Kathe Westbrook
The Livingston Centre Historic Village is holding the annual Fall Fest on Saturday, Sept. 30 inside the Fowlerville Fairgrounds. Many activities will be offered, including food and craft vendors, entertainment performances throughout the day, kids' games, tours of the historic buildings, a presentation by the Howell Nature Bus, vintage vehicles on display in the Car Corral and Punkin Chunkin'.
All the historic buildings will be open and docents will be on site to provide free tours and information. The Kirkland House can be toured after its three-year repair project. The model train that delighted so many during the Fowlerville Family Fair will again be running inside the Pere Marquette Depot. Even the Davis Barber Shop will be open, offering turns to little shavers.
Several local food vendors will be on the grounds with a variety of meals and snacks. Area crafters, meanwhile, will be displaying their creations and products.
And, once again the Punkin Chunkin' will take place; the trebuchet is ready to throw pumpkins. Stop by and see whose goes the farthest. There is an additional fee for those wanting to actually operate the trebuchet.
New this year is the Car Corral—a place to display your antique vehicle, be it a car, truck, tractor, or implement. Please call Mike Dunn at 734-673-1034 to reserve your space.
The Fall Fest will be the last opportunity to get tickets for the annual Raffle; the drawing will be held at 5:00 p.m. $1.00 tickets will be sold during the day; attendance is not required to win. Prizes include a locally-made bed spread, a handcrafted quilt, a Kindle Fire Tablet, a portable car battery charger, a large bird feeder, a family pass for the Canton, MI water park, and a family pass to Castaway Cafe in Howell.
The Fall Fest will begin at 10:00 a.m. There is lots of free parking in the west parking lot and admission fees vary by age.
