Algonquin's Old Time Country Harvest Day Saturday
The free event sponsored by the Downtown Algonquin Partnership will feature a farmers' market, a craft and vendor fair, a pumpkin dessert bake off, a scarecrow-building station (bring some old clothes) and kids games. Periodic walking tours of the Algonquin's historic Downtown are scheduled to start at 10 and a children's costume parade is set for 2 pm.
Non-perishable food donations to "Share the Harvest" will be collected on behalf of the Algonquin/Lake in the Hills Food Pantry. Event information and a listing of activities is here:
