Liberty plans fall festival

LIBERTY — With apples and pumpkins everywhere and leaves changing colors, autumn is definitely in the air in Pickens County.

In celebration, the city of Liberty will host its first-ever Fall For Liberty festival this Saturday, Oct. 27, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

The event will feature an old-fashioned cake walk, history tours, an amateur chili cook-off and many food options. All kinds of arts and crafts will also be available, including hand-made scarves, jewelry of all kinds, seasonal decorations and more. For kids (and kids at heart) there will be balloon art, inflatables, face painting, hayrides and games. Live music will include bluegrass from Scrapiron in the morning and more traditional tunes from Sound Factory in the afternoon.

Sponsored by the city of Liberty, Senator Larry Martin and Liberty Festivals and Events, the event will be fun for the entire family.
