The Mineral County Senior Services Program is hosting a Fall Festival fundraising event at Lion’s Park from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 26. This will be a family event with lots of fun activities planned for all ages. Hamburgers, hotdogs, chips and beverages will be available for sale, as well as snow cones, cotton candy and popcorn.

Planned activities include games for young and old and in between, music, private vendor sales (arts and crafts and such) and more. There will also be a horseshoe contest for ages 18 and older.

Individuals wishing to sell their handcrafted or flea market items, or home-based business products are welcome. Vendor spaces are available at a rate of $20 per 10-foot table area (senior citizen discount available if over age 60). Vendors will provide their own table(s), chair(s) and shade as necessary. For planning purposes, spaces must be reserved and paid for no later than Monday, Sept. 21. Call 945-5519 to reserve your space.

Service-oriented organizations and other businesses are encouraged to set up a table and distribute information about their services and/or distribute free advertising items. There will be no charge for reservation of these spaces as long as there are no sales involved. Please call 945-5519 to reserve space.

This event will be similar to a fair, whereby patrons will pay an entry fee at the gate. Most activities will be provided without additional charge except for food and beverage sales, horseshoe contest and of course, individual vendor sales.

Please plan to join us for a day of fun at the park. We hope this event is successful enough to become an annual event for the community’s enjoyment. Net proceeds will benefit the Senior Service Program of Mineral County. For additional information, please call 945-5519 Monday thru Friday between 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
