Gowanda will close out September with a Fall Festival weekend that promises something for everyone. The Gowanda Free Library started building the Fall atmosphere last weekend with their annual Mum Sale.

This year, that sale will carry over to a third day on Fall Fest Saturday, Sept. 30th, along with a Bake Sale. Also all this week,Jesse's Home & Gifts will have Coloring Contest sheets available for ages 4 to 6 and 7 to 10. Coloring sheets are due back by Noon on Sept. 30.

While it wasn't possible to pull together one favorite children's
event,the Scarecrow Workshop, in time for Fall Fest, the Gowanda Free Library was able to schedule a similar event for two weeks later. That will also be Homecoming Weekend in Gowanda and the Gowanda Boosters Club is planning a very special parade for Spirit Week this year including a guest nationally ranked marching unit.

 

Here is the schedule of events for this weekend's festival!
