Fall festival set for Village Green Oct. 13


Art and crafts, games, folk music and other family favorites again will bring life to the Village Green this Saturday for the fourth annual Worthington Fall Festival.

Festivities will fill the south quadrants of the Green from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 13.

The festival is sponsored by the Old Worthington Business Association.

Some of the favorites from the June arts festival are expected to return for the fall festival, along with other arts-and-crafts people.

The festival also will feature inflatable games from Super Games, storytelling, folk music and food concessions.

Downtown shops and restaurants will be open, and the regular farmers market will line High Street from 9 a.m. to noon.

A community-service organization fair will be held on the northeast quadrant in conjunction with the fall festival. It will be moved to the Griswold Center if inclement weather occurs.

Representatives of community organizations will provide information about services, membership and volunteer opportunities.

The information fair is sponsored by the Worthington Community Relations Commission and the recently formed Worthington Area Community Relations Roundtable.
