Perhaps it is the best time to ride the Amish Percheron horse drawn wagon ride through the village woods with the fall colors and all of the many attractions offered there; or sit on the village square and take in the special music &amp; Sorin" Hawks demonstration, including Jefferson their Bald Eagle; or maybe just talking with our local artisans as they display &amp; sell their handmade items; or enjoying the chainsaw masters as they continue to show their skills. For the children this is a Very special festival because they can carve or paint their own personal pumpkin or do special crafts &amp; games, ride the Moose Trax train, play on the Moose Trax playground, enjoy horse rides &amp; as with our other festivals, special pricing opens the entire village &amp; all attractions for them to enjoy. "Moses the Moose" &amp; Johnny Appleseed will of course be here for this last festival of the year. Mackey's General Store with all of their specialty items and food will be open and as our regular October attraction, this year the champion pumpkin and gourd will be available or pictures as well as other fall decorations.</span></div> </div> 11330 E 500 South LaOtto, IN America/Indiana/Winamac
