Falling Leaves Festival underway

Coudersport’s

Falling Leaves Festival kicks into high gear on Saturday, highlighted by a parade at 3 pm that will include special guests as well as the high school homecoming queen and king finalists.

Vendor booths lined up in and near the courthouse square will open at 9 am. Antique cars will be on display from 10 to 2. Children can enjoy pumpkin-painting and face-painting on Third Street from 11 to 2.

A chainsaw-carving demonstration is planned throughout the day at the Methodist Church lot.

Potter County Historical Society will offer guided walking tours highlighting aspects of Coudersport’s history at 10 and 12:30. The organization’s museum will be open for tours during the day.

Live music by Luke and Angie is scheduled at the gazebo from noon to 3. The Jock-ular Juggler will entertain there at 4. He’ll also be roaming the grounds to entertain during the day, as will Yogi the Clown with his popular balloon artistry.

Among the 3 pm parade entries is a float from the Coudersport High School class of 1964, harkening back to the days when each class built an entry for the float competition.

After the parade, a new event will debut – the Wing-Off, Chili and Salsa Tasting Contest from 4 to 6. Cash prizes will be paid. Tickets are available at the Chamber of Commerce booth on the square.

A free children’s movie will be shown at the Methodist Church lot at 5, with complimentary kettle corn available.

Falling Leaves Festival is a project of the Coudersport Area Chamber of Commerce.
