Summer may be over but Autumn fun activities are just beginning. For instance this Saturday it's the annual Faribault Main Street Fall Festival and Chili Cookoff in downtown Faribault. This day is jam packed with all kinds of family friendly events, so grab the kids and head downtown.

A children's parade down Central Ave kicks off the activities at noon. Make sure to dress the little ones in costumes and bring a strollers or wagons. The parade is followed by trick or treating and the Haunted Basement Tours at the Paradise Center for the Arts. There will also be the annual Chili Contest. You can either compete or help judge the various entries.

The Faribault Foods Fall Frolic 5k walk/run is being held in the morning and Faribault Parks and Recreation has organized a downtown history walking tour for your enjoyment plus many other events. There's no reason to stay inside when there's so much fun going on outside in downtown Faribault this Saturday.
