You are invited to start the day with the organizers of the event at a free coffee at the Annual Fall Family Fest Bake Sale at 10:30 a.m., the perfect time to purchase some great homemade treats.

There will be games and activities for the kids from 10:30 a.m. until 4 p.m., along with a little train ride, face painting, and Magic act by Cletus Henke.

There will be an art display by area artists, along with a children's coloring contest and art projects all day.

Judy Miller will be presenting a rope-making presentation at 10:30 a.m. and local musicians will provide music.

Lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and for just $3 you can get a tavern or hotdog with chips and a drink.

If all that activity was not enough for you, there will also be a farmers market held from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

All funds raised go to the Depot Renovation, Inc. for ongoing maintenance and projects for the Historic Depot.
