The Oakdale Leader - - LIVING -

If you’ve never been to Coul­ter­ville, the gold rush town too tough to die, now’s the time.

On Satur­day, Sept. 23, this year’s Coy­ote­Fest turns Coul­ter­ville back into a boom­town for the day. Fea­tur­ing the 32nd an­nual Coy­ote Howl, a car show, pony rides, the Coy­ote Hill Band, an ar­ray of kids ac­tiv­i­ties, ven­dor booths filled with unique mer­chan­dise and all sorts of other en­ter­tain­ment and ac­tiv­i­ties, it is a day of free fam­ily fun for ev­ery­one.

A pa­rade down His­toric Main Street kicks off the day at 10 a.m. There are no ad­mis­sion fees to en­joy the live mu­sic and en­ter­tain­ment in ei­ther the park or on Main Street and there’s free park­ing all around town, thanks in large part to Al­lied Auto, the Coy­ote­Fest Event Spon­sor and Car Show Spon­sor.

The Car Show fea­tur­ing an ar­ray of vin­tage, clas­sic and sports cars be­gins at 10 a.m. on His­toric Main Street, which is also where there will be free show­ings of Road Run­ner car­toons at the John Muir Geo­tourism Cen­ter with free pop­corn.

Coul­ter­ville Park will fea­ture a wide range of ac­tiv­i­ties. The Coy­ote Hill Band will be belt­ing out their great mu­sic through­out the day. The Kid’s Korner will fea­ture prizes and games, and there’s face paint­ing, a bounce house, pony rides, and “Zippy” elec­tric rides for the younger set. Both the Coy­ote Howl Con­test and Horse­shoe Con­tests take place through­out the day. Ven­dors this year will fea­ture an ar­ray of craft and vin­tage goods along with ket­tle corn; jams, jel­lies, baked goods, ham­burg­ers and hot dogs, tacos, en­chi­ladas, BBQ, soda, wa­ter, beer; can­dles, Coy­ote­Fest sou­venir T-Shirts, raf­fles, and more.

The 32nd An­nual Coy­ote Howl Con­test will once again be front and cen­ter. Sign-ups take place in the park. All ages from in­fant to 100+ are wel­come to com­pete for the $100 cash prizes in ev­ery cat­e­gory with their most wowin’ howl.
