A Columbus Weekend Street Fair around town and a Harvest Fest at Gore Mountain Oct. 8 and 9 will provide townies and visitors lots of options for weekend entertainment.
The street fair will have an event in Wevertown, things to do in downtown North Creek and on the south side of town.
The Wevertown Country Store is celebrating its first anniversary with live music, and Basil & Wicks will offer a bounce house.
The Rustic Homestead will offer fly-fishing instruction, and Main Street will have sidewalk sales from local and visiting vendors. The usual golf-cart style shuttle that moves train visitors around town will be operating.
Connecting the town with Gore will be another free shuttle. Gore's Harvest Festival will have gondola rides, a bounce house village, live bands and juggling shows. Lots of kids games will be played, and vendors and crafters will market their wares. There will also be a guess the weight of the great pumpkin game.
Admission to the Gore festival is free. Lots of food will be available for purchase, and helicopter rides of the Gore peaks will fly all day, $40 for early flights and $45 for afternoons.
