As the weather slowly starts to transition from summer heat, Downtown Business Association welcomes Moffat County residents for some seasonal fun.

The seventh annual Fall Fest kicks off Saturday morning along the 400 and 500 blocks of Yampa Avenue, with plenty of family activities running from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

For the kids and kids at heart, a pumpkin patch and free pumpkin painting will be available to hearken the feeling of fall. Likewise, face painting, bounce houses and hamster wheels are offered for the younger crowd.

Rising Star Youth Training Center will host a bake sale fundraiser for its gymnastics team with plenty of goodies and games.

For the older set, ax-throwing, a cornhole tournament and a beer garden will be on site, as well as a car show hosted by Colorado Cruisers.

Sidewalk sales will also be available at downtown shops with special deals for patrons.

With live music all day in the park, crowds can also get their tastebuds in gear with a dessert bake-off and a chili cookoff.

Entry is $5 for the bake-off and $15 for the chili cook-off with cash prizes. To sign up in advance for the latter, email
