October Festival Boasts Free Kids’ Activities

 In Events, Warroad

October Festival will be an event that offers something for the whole family. And the best part is, all kids’ activities are free of charge!

A Touch-a-Truck event will kick off Friday night’s festivities. Vehicles from local law enforcement and emergency services will park alongside big rigs, farm machinery, construction vehicles, and a Wahl Brothers Racing race car! Curious children will be able to look at and hop behind the wheel of all these vehicles. We are still seeking vehicles and machinery for this event, so please contact Sarah Homme to learn more about how you or your business can participate.

A Children’s Tent will be set up and is scheduled to be open at different times during the festival. To keep the interest of October Festival attendees who make a weekend of it and stay for the whole event, each time window will have a different theme. Whether it’s trucks, acorns and corn, apples, or pumpkins – children will be sure to enjoy the variety of crafts, projects, and activities offered.  There will even be Bingo!

On Saturday, Comedy Magician Jeffrey Salveson will provide two separate one-hour magic shows along with an hour each of balloon twisting and up close strolling magic tricks. Between the magic shows, there will be a variety show of sorts on the Amphitheater Stage featuring local talent.

If your kiddos have participated in the kid’s races on the 4th of July, they will enjoy the seasonal twist that Warroad Community Church has put on the kid’s races for October Festival! There will also be horse-drawn wagon rides available and kids with a competitive bone can participate in the Kid’s Cornhole Tournament. This tournament is free of charge, but pre-registration is recommended as the number of teams is limited.

Would you like to enjoy the activities for ages 21+ at the event on Saturday night sans children? A separate offsite childcare option is being offered from 6-10pm! There is a limited number of spaces available, so act quickly claim your spot under the Events tab at www.warroadportal.com.
