COLUMBIA CITY â€” Activities and entertainment are scheduled for the Whitley County Fall Festival at Morsches Park Saturday from 1 to 9 p.m.
â€śThis is event is full of family fun,â€ť Mark Green, Columbia City Parks Department director. â€śNo matter what your age, there is something for everyone this year.â€ť
Launching the festival will be a 5K Pumpkin Run at 1 p.m., hosted by Parkview Whitley Hospital and a cornhole tournament at the Whitley County YMCA.
Green said last yearâ€™s event, in its inaugural year, was a starting point for what is now an annual event.
â€śLast year we had the festival in order to have something in place of the fourth of July cancellations,â€ť Green said. â€śThe fall event was a success even with the bad weather. People came out to support it and it made sense to have it again.â€ť
With this yearâ€™s event, Green said there are some changes. One shift festival goers will notice is the fireworks display to go off approximately 9 p.m.
