Fall For Fall

September 2, 2018

By Leah Nissly

I have a hunch that fall is the favorite season of many.

 The return to schedule, the briskness in the air, the smell and warmth of a bonfire, not to mention the shockingly gorgeous color in our trees.  It also brings to us fall festivities around our tri-region that add to the beauty of this season!

September 15 brings two exciting activities to both Stony Plain and Spruce Grove.  One Man’s Treasure in Stony Plain is holding the Fall Street Market from 9AM to 3PM. This market is held twice a year, and the 15th is the last for this year! This is an amazing, fun community event that gives back to the community.  There are 108 booths set up, all selling treasures found, treasures made, and treasures gently used. From antiques to modern, there is a treasure to be found by old and young alike! Proceeds from booth rental and the concession all go to local charity.

 In addition, from 9:30-1:30 on the same day, Spruce Grove is holding the Harvest Fair at the Grain Elevator Museum Site (120 Railway Ave.). This family festival is farm-themed and sure to bring out your inner farmer. It is free for the family to attend. Activities include farmyard games, a potato sack race, a cow milking competition, hay rides, bouncy houses and crafts.  And of course the farmer’s market and concessions to bring home goodies! Being a farm girl that loves finding treasures, I’m going to have to try and make it out to both!
