It’s become an annual tradition, as predictable as the September Fellitesse Festival in Old Forge, or the changing of the seasons.
With the arrival of pumpkins and cornstalks and crisp autumn nights, comes the annual Taylor Community Library’s annual Fall Festival, a celebration and fundraiser set for this Saturday, Oct. 5.
“This is a family-oriented fun activity that benefits the library,” said Taylor Community Library Director Jeanie Sluck said. “And this year it really is about the baskets. Baskets, baskets, baskets.”
This year’s event boasts more than 100 baskets attendees can purchase tickets and take a chance on winning.
“They range from baskets for men, babies, baskets that have lottery tickets, baskets with resort stays,” she added. “People who like basket raffles really need to come and check us out. Basic basket tickets are five for a dollar.”
Sluck added that the event also has a children’s area.
“There will be a lollipop game and other activities and crafts for children throughout the day,” she said.
In addition to the baskets and childrens’ activities, Sluck explained that there will be a bake sale, a food sale and a book sale.
Food items will feature homemade ethnic favorites like haluski, broccoli and shells and sausage and peppers, available to eat while at the festival or to take home.
The library is located at 710 S. Main St. in Taylor. For more information, contact the library at 570-562-1234
“Admission is free and we hope the community will come out and help us, “ she added.
