Huron River Art Fest

 

The Huron Chamber of Commerce and Parks and Recreation Department have teamed up on two special fall events to create a day of fun, craft activities and great art on Saturday, October 11, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

 

The Huron River Art Fest draws artisans from around northern Ohio to share their treasures at this fourth annual event.

 

 The Pumpkin Festival is one of the highlights of the fall season for area families. Activities include a magic show, Jungle Bob’s reptile show, a juggling show, a scarecrow decorating contest and face painting. A real crowd pleaser for the children is the Barnes Nursery pumpkin drop at 2:30 p.m. and several inflatable slides and houses.

 

Artisans are invited to participate - click here for details.
