CLINTON – Friends of Carver-Roehl are making plans to hold their 13th annual “Fall Fest/Fun Fest” on Sunday, Oct. 4, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Carver-Roehl Park (located ½ mile north of Creek Road on Carvers Rock Road, between Clinton and Darien). Please mark your calendars now.

The main event this year will be Dog Agility demonstrations given by Larry Miller from Janesville. In addition, musician Jessie Walker will entertain festival goers with a wide variety of music, from old country to rock and roll.

There will be a food stand featuring Wendy’s chili and walking tacos, among other items. Delicious homemade goodies can be purchased at the Bake Sale table.

Music and programs are completely FREE.

Children’s events will include a petting zoo, children’s crafts, coloring table, face painting, and of course playground fun and hiking with your family on the scenic trails. New this year for the children is fingernail painting fun!

The quilt for our raffle is the 2015 Wisconsin Shop Hop Quilt, a stunning creation with a Wisconsin red/white/black theme. Tickets are available at the Clinton Town Bank or from members of the Friends of Carver-Roehl group.

This festival is the Friends of Carver-Roehl Park’s only fundraiser. The Friends group would greatly appreciate your support by attending this family fun event. Funds raised from this event will be used for continued improvements within the park.

Anyone interested in being a crafter/farmer’s market vendor should contact Nancy Pope at (608) 676-4605. Donations of “Theme Baskets” for our basket raffle are also welcome, as are volunteer workers.

Contact Nancy for further information.

Donations of non-perishable food items for the Clinton Food Pantry would also be appreciated.

October is a beautiful time of the year in Wisconsin, and Fall Fest/Fun Fest at Carver-Roehl Park is the perfect place for you and your family to enjoy nature at its best. See you on Oct.4!
