It’s time for Prairieview Lutheran Home’s annual Fall Festival, Sept. 6-7.
The highlight of the event is always seeing the handmade quilts up for auction, and bidding on them, said Lisa Kleinert, marketing/outreach with Prairieview.
“There’s always so many amazing, beautiful quilts. There’s so much time and effort spent on these timeless pieces,” she said. This year there’s expected to be about 25 to be auctioned off at 3 p.m. Saturday.
But, she said, “There’s a lot of new things with this festival this year.”
There’s a goal of making it more of a family affair. There will be a petting zoo, face painting and bubbles area set up. The Slow Boys should make a ride there, as well.
This is the second year for its 5K, Kleinert said. The walk/run will begin at 8 a.m. Saturday.
“There’s a lot of family members running in memory of a loved one.
“This is growing for us and that’s great,” she said.
The opening ceremony for the event in Danforth will be at 10:45 a.m. Friday. The Woodworth Fish Fry will begin at 11.
