Out & About: The Beginning of Fall

The coming days are full of activities to get you in the mood for fall.

Art Along the Rogue

Angry Birds are coming in for a landing in Grants Pass. It’s all part of this year’s Art Along The Rogue street painting and music festival. A 3-d illustration of the popular on-line game is being created on the side of the Hannah’s Historic Steam Laundry Building on the corner of 5th and H Streets. The drawing joins other sidewalk art at the Northwest’s Premier Chalk Art Festival in Grants Pass this weekend, October 6 and 7.

Talent Harvest Festival

If you love a parade, then Talent is the place to be on Saturday morning. The 43rd Annual Talent Harvest Festival is kicking off on Saturday at 7 a.m. with a pancake breakfast and crazy 5k or 10k race. Then stake out your spot to watch the parade at 10 a.m. The festival also features live music, food, a beer and wine garden, vendor booths, and kids activities. The Talent Harvest Festival runs until 4:30 on Saturday.

Fort Vannoy Farms Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch

Fall wouldn’t be the same without a good corn maze or hunt in the pumpkin patch. On October 6th, Fort Vannoy Farms will open, featuring an 8-acre corn maze, 2 zip lines and much more. There will also be a special event on October 27th where you will be able to make your way through a corn maze under the cover of darkness. You’ll find Fort Vannoy Farms in Grant Pass on Upper River Road.

Ashland’s Zombie Walk

Zombies will be taking over downtown Ashland tomorrow evening. For the third year, Ashland High School students are organizing the zombie walk as a way to kick off the month of October. It will begin tomorrow at 4 p.m. Zombies will gather in costume at Evo’s Coffee Lounge on East Main Street. They will then make their way in a parade fashion down to the plaza around 5 p.m. and is expected to last about an hour.
