The Fall Festival will take place on Saturday, Sept. 15, at the Livingston Centre Historic Village inside the fairgrounds from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Once again a variety of entertainment and activities are being offered.
There are several Kids Games and Craft, including a Corn Hole Toss, Pumpkin Field Hockey Shot Competition, Kool-Aid Pong, Bounce House, Water-Balloon Sling Shot, 3-Legged Race, and a Cake Walk.
New this year will be bike races for both kids and adults. There will be no additional fee and recognition will be provided to winners in all categories.
Children, ages 11 and younger, will race at 12:00 noon, while the race for those aged 12 and older will be 2:00 p.m. Kids must register at least 30 minutes prior to start time, and need to bring their own bike. Bike helmets are required. A corral where bikes can be left will be provided for racers so they can enjoy the rest of the Fall Fest before and after the races.
There will also be bike races all day for adults; 3-wheeled full size tricycles will be provided to anyone wishing to join the fun at no additional fee.
Other activities include wagon rides, barrel train rides, and old-time demonstrations featuring blacksmithing, spinning, and rug looming.
Music will be offered throughout the day. Among the performers will be Charlie’s Angels, Bob Broadbent, Joanna Lauren, Steve Burns, Scott Ziemba, Mark Simpson, and MC2 Barbershop Quartet. Also entertaining festival-goers will be the Country Kickers, a clogging group.
In addition, the Livingston Acoustic Music Society will be playing at the Green Methodist Church.
The historical buildings will be open, with actors from the Fowlerville Community Theatre dressed in period costume at several of them. On display at the Railroad Depot will be a model train display.
Several crafters will be offering their wares, and food and refreshments will be available.
Admission is $5 for adults 18 and older with $3 for seniors over 62, $3 for teenagers 13 to 17, $1 for children 4 to 12, and no charge for children 3 and under.
Money raised from this annual event is used to maintain and restore the historic buildings.
