It’s been a strange sort of fall this year with snow falling and the leaves still on the trees, but the weekend ahead is shaping up to be a beautiful one with much adventure available in our community!
Tonight’s plans include the annual Oktoberfest event hosted by the Voyageur Bottle Shop and Pizza Pub in downtown Pine City. Enjoy this beer tasting event from 5:30 – 8:00 PM. Food and cash donations for the Pine Community Food Shelf will be accepted.
On Saturday the options for events are diverse and plentiful… they include:
The final day of the 2013 Farmer’s Market in the Park. The faithful vendors will be on hand for this week’s final themed event — Pumpkins! The FM runs from 11am – 1pm and a special feature at NOON is the Spooktacular Pumpkin Carving contest in the gazebo, co-hosted by the Pine Center for the Arts.
The final weekend of the newest addition to our fall “Places to See” is the Peaceful Pines Pumpkin Patch just east of Pine City. Open Friday from 4pm – Dusk, Saturday 11am – 6pm and Sunday 11am – 4pm. FREE entry, FREE parking and FREE entertainment — your cost to attend is the purchase of your pumpkin. An amazing deal!
The American Legion Auxiliary will host a free Halloween costume party at the American Legion from 2:00 – 4:00 PM for children up to 12 years old. There will be a costume parade, games, prizes, candy & more!!
