The Walton Chamber of Commerce is organizing a fall festival “Leaf Peeking and Antiquing” event for Saturday, Oct 12 from 9 am till 3 pm. The event is intended to invite folks to our beautiful town to see the fall foliage, and enjoy Walton’s variety of antique shops on a wonderful hometown Homecoming Weekend.
The homecoming parade will start at the bus garage at 9 am and conclude at the school. The football game will be played at home at 1:30 pm. While you are waiting for game time, you can shop the sales in Walton’s shops. A map will be available of all the antique and thrift stores.
Vendors with antiques, or homemade crafts of goods and food are also welcome to join in at Vet’s Plaza in a juried craft event with the emphasis on fall pleasures. Spots will cost $20 for an 8x10 spot, or $10 for Walton Chamber members. If you are interested in a spot please contact me at 865-5009.
Enjoy lunch and dinner at some of Walton’s restaurants and stay to enjoy the Chamber’s Free Night of Entertainment that evening at the Walton Theatre. Come enjoy a beautiful fall weekend in Walton.

Definitely plenty to do this month! If you’re looking for more activities, perhaps check out the new mini-golf course in Bovina that we mentioned in last month’s newsletter. Or check the Everything Walton community calendar for recently added events.
