Tren­ton FallFest starts Fri­day

The News (New Glasgow) - - PICTOU COUNTY -

With the au­tumn leaves be­gin­ning to show their col­ors, the sec­ond an­nual Tren­ton FallFest is quickly ap­proach­ing.

This year’s fes­ti­val will take place Oct. 13-Oct. 15.

Tren­ton FallFest will kick off on Fri­day with the Street Fair from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Open Air Ac­tiv­ity Cen­tre on Main Street (across from town hall on Main Street).

The Street Fair will in­clude a mar­ket fea­tur­ing lo­cal ven­dors sell­ing home­made items and baked goods, as well as some lo­cal direct sales ven­dors. New to the Street Fair this year will be more chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties, thanks to spon­sor­ship from Sobeys.

There will be free face paint­ing, games, and arts and crafts like chalk art. Chil­dren can also dec­o­rate their own Hal­loween mask to take home. Par­tic­i­pants can also help keep the fall spirit alive once FallFest ends by help­ing dec­o­rate pump­kins to be dis­trib­uted to lo­cal busi­nesses through­out Tren­ton. Lo­cal mu­si­cian Ash­ley Ge­orge will en­ter­tain the crowd be­gin­ning at 6:30 p.m.

The Tren­ton Pub­lic Li­brary is get­ting in the fall spirit with two events.

Visit the li­brary during reg­u­lar busi­ness hours on Fri­day or Satur­day for the Great Pump­kin Hunt. Search the li­brary for six hid­ing pump­kins and re­ceive a book from Adopt-a-Li­brary Lit­er­acy Pro­gram. On Satur­day from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., there will also be an Au­tumn Themed Crafty Satur­day where you can make a craft to take home.

Satur­day will go to the dogs at Tren­ton Park as Bender’s Bites hosts their first 3km Dog Jog and Ca­nine Cos­tume Con­test from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. This will be a fundraiser for Good Bones Dog Res­cue.
