Sneak Peek into Fall Fest October 5

ROCHESTER, Minn.—Fall Fest presented by the Rochester Downtown Alliance and Altra Federal Credit Union excites all the senses in a free, family-friendly event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., October 5 in Peace Plaza.

Pumpkin-Spicing It Up with Music

Music extraordinaire Fernando Ufret will grab his guitar and a mic to play for the all-ages audience! Catch his performance from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the middle of all the Fall Fest action in Peace Plaza.

Autumnal Activities and Arts

From toddler age to upper elementary, all ages will find fall-themed fun for them at Fall Fest! Games like Pick a Pumpkin and bean bag toss are perfect for the younger children while skill-based ones like a Geoboard pumpkin and marshmallow geometry are the forte for more mature kids. Everyone (dads and moms included) will enjoy the pick-your-own pumpkin patch, make-and-take art projects, petting zoo, interactive mural, and fall photo opportunities. All these fun endeavors are provided by Fall Fest vendors and partners.
