A Hint of Fall is in the Air

Fall Fest PumpkinsThe City of Chardon would like to announce the annual Fall Fest, which will follow the last Chardon Farmers Market. The Fall Fest will be held on the Historic Chardon Square to celebrate the arrival of fall with a fun night with your family, friends, and neighbors. The Fall Fest is being organized by the City of Chardon with the assistance of the Chardon Area Rotary, Chardon Area Kiwanis, and the Chardon Square Association.

The last Chardon Farmers Market will take place on September 28 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. There will be many local goods including some of the last locally raised produce of the season, some traditional fall favorites, and many samples prepared by local amateur chefs. For the last farmers market, and new for the year, is Yappy Hour. As part of Yappy Hour, please bring your dog to enjoy special treats.

The Fall Fest will take place on Historic Chardon Square the following weekend, Saturday October 6, starting at 7:00 p.m. and ending at about 9:00 p.m. There are many free activities for the family including scarecrow making, Fritz the Balloonatic, pumpkins, entertainment provided by DJ Dennis Ford, hot dogs, cider, and roasted marshmallows fresh from an open fire. This will be an evening of fun and entertainment on the Historic Chardon Square.
