Fall Market winds up successful season
It’s a wrap! The Crowsnest Community Market put on a well-deserved encore with their special Fall Festival-themed market, marking the last one for this year and giving us the closure we all need with the end of summer. Hot apple cider, an orange-speckled patch of pumpkins, scarecrow races, and created the perfect autumn vibe. Kids got messy participating in a community leaf pile play area, a donut-on-a-string eating contest and the jack-o'-lantern scavenger hunt. The market’s chilli cook-off raised $192.25 to help rebuild area ranches which were lost to the Kenow Wildfire.
