Once again, the Byron High School Visual Arts Program will host the Byron Fall Festival in downtown Byron. The event will be from 2 to 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 21 and will include free activities such as hayrides, games, a craft table, a student art show, a scavenger hunt, music, face painting, cider and donuts, prizes, and food. There will also be pumpkins for sale near the intersection of W. Maple and S. Saginaw streets.
There will be best pumpkin and best costume contests for children 12 years old and younger. Pumpkins are to be dropped off between 2 and 3 p.m., and judging will be at 3 p.m. Costume contest participants should report to the lawn on the southwest corner of the intersection of W. Maple and S. Saginaw streets by 4 p.m. for judging. Winners will be announced at 4:30 p.m. Entry to each contest will cost $5 per contest, per person. Organizers encourage festival goers to bring a bag to collect goodies. All proceeds from the family-friendly event will benefit the Byron High School Art Department to help purchase materials.
