Plymouth’s annual Fall Festival runs this year from September 11 through 13.  Notable events this year include:

  1. Bingo, Friday, 6 p.m.
  2. Taste Fest, Friday, 6 to 8 p.m.
  3. Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast, Saturday, 7 to 11:30 a.m.
  4. Rotary Club Spaghetti Dinner, Saturday, 4 to 8 p.m.
  5. 5 K Run, Sunday, 8 a.m.
  6. Rotary Club Chicken BBQ, Sunday, 4 to 8 p.m.

I love Fall Festival.  Usually the weather’s nice and everyone seems to gather downtown.  Unlike some of the other events, it is the time that I seem most to run into neighbors and friends from the area.

Make sure you get downtown for Fall Festival.

Our family just saw, UP, a fantastic little movie in the first-run theater a few weeks back, and at a hefty price, too. It’s a great “family” movie. I can’t believe it’s coming to the Penn so soon.

It will run there August 28-30, and September 3. Tickets are only $3.00. That beats the pants off the $11 per ticket we paid. Go see it. You’ll like it.

Big block party weekend

Our neighborhood held it’s annual block party Saturday evening on Harding Street, adjacent to (and at) Fairground Park.  Everyone appeared to have a great time, including yours truly.  I got to know a few neighbors a bit better and enjoy some really delicious food and drink.

I noticed that a few other local neighborhoods had block parties as well.   I wonder if there is a connection.

I hate to see summer fun like this drawing to a close.

The Breast Cancer Three Day Walk will go through Plymouth Saturday between 9:45-2:00. The official “cheer station” will be at the Kellogg Park.

I noticed that the barricades are already being set up.   Be prepared for possible traffic issues downtown.

Plymouth and a number of local businesses are well represented on Facebook.  I wrote the other day about the Plymouth Area Chamber of Commerce’s Facebook page, but since then I’ve found a number of other pages.  If you’re a “FB’er” you might like these.
