This Saturday, Oct. 10, the 22nd annual Todd New River Fall Festival, hosted by the Todd Ruritan Club, will take place. It will be held at the Walter and Annie Cook Park from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.
The festival is going to be a fun-filled, all day event in a beautiful town with a welcoming community. It will include crafts, food and special activities for children of all ages, including face painting.
“We’ll probably have 25 crafts and vendors and music. There’s entertainment all day,” said Barry Stevens, president of the Todd Ruritan Club. “Lots of good food and just a really good festival.”
According to Stevens, the TRC is expecting a couple of thousand people to attend the festival and to come through Todd to participate and really have a great day with the community.
The TRC is a civic community organization that helps plan events in Todd, while also setting up roadside cleanup and programs that will help benefit the community of Todd as a whole.
“We want to raise funds for the community through this festival,” Stevens said. “All the proceeds go towards the community and scholarships.”
The festival is free and open to the public, with the exception of parking which costs $5 per car.
