CLINTON — Friends of Carver-Roehl Park will host their 18th annual free Fall Fest from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 6, at Carver-Roehl County Park, 4907 S. Carvers Rock Road. The park is one-half mile north of Creek Road on Carvers Rock Road.
A highlight of this year’s festival is the new tree identification course. Following a dedication ceremony at noon, Jim Hessenauer of the Rock County Parks Department will lead a guided hike on the trails, “providing festival-goers the perfect opportunity to check out the tree identification course and enjoy the incredible fall colors and unique limestone outcroppings,” according to a news release.

At 1 p.m., representatives from Fellow Mortals of Lake Geneva will present an educational program about injured and orphaned animals that receive care through their nonprofit organization.

Free horse-drawn carriage rides will be available throughout the day, featuring a team of Percherons owned and driven by Tammy Hennager and Jim Hunkins of H and H Carriage of Brodhead.

Children’s events will include a coloring table, face painting, gourd painting, playground fun and hiking on the scenic trails throughout the park. Other attractions include live music by Brooke Nunn, a food stand and a bake sale table.

In addition to the food and fun, organizers are planning raffles of a handmade quilt, kayaks and more, as well as sales of the Friends of Carver-Roehl’s Favorite Recipes Cookbook.

Attendees are encouraged to bring nonperishable food items to donate to the Clinton Food Pantry.

Fall Fest is the Friends of Carver-Roehl Park’s only fundraiser. Funds will be used for continued improvements within the park.
