Celebrate fall in Duluth at the annual Chester Bowl Fall Festival on Saturday, Sept. 21.
A bounce house, face painting and other activities for children are planned. Organizers say one of the most popular attractions is the farmers market, with fresh caramel apples, sweet cider and locally grown sweet corn.
The money raised from the event will help fund ski activities for all ages and income levels.
The event runs from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Chester Bowl Park.
International Day of Peace
Besides the 110 craft- and food vendors and farmers market, Men as Peacemakers will have activities for children and feature story-tellers who tell tales of peace throughout the day, as September 21 is the United Nations International Day of Peace.
The park stage will feature live music. Acoustic folk/rock performer Greg Tibirzi will play from 10 a.m. to noon, followed by Matt Wahl from noon to 2 p.m., and then Doug Greenwood from 2 to 4 p.m.
There is no admission fee, but there is a suggested donation of $2, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to ski scholarships for needy families at Chester Bowl. More than $10,000 was awarded for the 2012 ski season by the Chester Bowl Improvement Club.
