Fall Crafts Festival to take over downtown Danville

All things fall are happening in downtown Danville this weekend at the Danville Fall Crafts Festival, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday on Hartz Avenue. It will feature a Halloween parade, a kids activity area, street and stage entertainment, food, wines and microbrews as well as 200 artists. Scarecrow Alley, created by the Bay Hills Pony Club, has the theme of Scarecrows Gone Hollywood.

This is the 16th year for the event, hosted by the Danville Area Chamber of Commerce. "The Fall Crafts Festival really is the perfect time to begin thinking about the change of seasons and a wonderful time to start your holiday shopping," said Chamber president Melony Newman.

Kids can don their costumes for the Halloween Parade beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday at School Street. Merchants will provide trick-or-treating, and there will be inflatables for bouncing.

Next weekend, the Danville Livery will celebrate Halloween with its annual Pumpkin Jubilee Festival. Kids and families are invited to dress in costumes, and enjoy live music, pumpkin giveaways, trick-or-treating and more, from 11 a.m.-4 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 27.
