It’s Fall Festival weekend, which means non-stop fun in the Village and on the slopes! Enjoy loads of entertainment all around town, arts and crafts vendors, carnival rides, huge sales and much more all weekend long.

Start your weekend off right Friday in the Village with the food court, from 6 to 10 p.m., and live music at the local hot spots. See schedule page 17.

Heading into Saturday and Sunday, stroll the arts and crafts vendors lining the Village streets. Find that perfect gift for yourself and get a jump on that holiday shopping. The food court will be open, with lots of grub to choose from, and the young and young at heart will love the rides.

Up at Holiday Valley, gear up for the season at the Mountain Shop Sale and the Ski Swap. Take a scenic chairlift ride to the top of Spruce or Mardi Gras, where you can enjoy a cookout and live music. More entertainment can be found at the Cabana Bar overlooking the slopes.

If you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, Sky High’s Aerial Park and Mountain Coaster will be open.
