Mora set to ring in autumn with fifth annual Fall Fest

In Fall Fest's fifth year of celebrating all things autumnal in the city of Mora, there's only one running tradition Mora Activities and Recreation coordinator Jeff Krie is hoping to shake.

"We've had a little bad luck with weather with this event," Krie said with a laugh during a recent interview. "But we still have a lot of people attending."

What started as a "challenge from city council to host some kind of event to promote parks and trails," in Krie's words, has continued to grow over its five years of ringing in the fall season.

This year, Fall Fest is set for noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 23 at Library Park in Mora.

Library Park is located at 210 Maple Avenue West.

"Rain or shine," Krie said, "But hopefully we'll have more shine."

Entrance is free, and Library Park will play host to family-friendly activities, food trucks, a barbeque cook-off, and live entertainment.

Krie said magician Don Bursell will be strolling through the park from noon to 2 p.m., and Poppa Bear Norton will perform from two to three.

"The music is provided from a grant that we get funding from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund and the East Central Regional Arts Council," Krie explained.

Those hoping to sample and judge ribs during the barbeque cook-off, which Krie said is returning by popular demand, will have to pay $10 for a wristband to participate.

Fall Fest is organized by the city of Mora and its park board, and Krie expressed his gratitude for the community sponsors who help make the event happen.

"If you're out and about, thank them for this event," Krie said. "It's awesome that they do this."
