With the leaves starting to turn, it is obvious that a new season is arriving.
These changes, as they do every year, give way to the Walden Fall Fair, being held at the Anderson Farm Museum on Sept. 14 from 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
The opening ceremony occurs on the outdoor stage at 10 a.m. followed by a number of performers who will take the stage throughout the day. These live acts include the Sudbury and District Pipe Band, Northern All Stars Steel Pan, Chicks with Picks and The Tremonics.
The Sudbury Classic Cruisers will hold a Shine and Show with two other regional car clubs on the festival grounds. This display of beautiful classics and polished chrome is a key attraction and will be held near the Great Pumpkin Contest.
A Farmers Market housed under three large tents will show off the hard work of the agricultural community.
Starting at 11 a.m., a barbecue will serve up food with all the profit going to the AFM Heritage Society.
A collection of antique tractors will also be shown and pay homage to Walden’s farming heritage. Mixed in with the rest of these events will be more than 90 arts and crafts vendors. Directly involved in this part of the festival will be the Walden Art Club, which will host hands-on arts and crafts sessions.
The Anderson Farm Museum is the hub of all this activity and will offer tours of its facilities. The 2nd Battalion Irish Regiment of Canada will also muster for the event.
Families are invited to addend, as many events are free.
Wagon Wheel Ranch is offering free rides, balloons will be handed out, and cotton candy will be given to any child who wants some. This festival offers many opportunities which will be enjoyable and educational.
