Organizers of Cranbrook’s Fall Festival are hoping the event is an even bigger success this year.
Acting Director of Leisure Services Paul Heywood says they are building on the energy from last year’s event.
“We expect this to be quite a bit larger than last year, but last year was a great start,” Heywood says. “Its time we start developing festivals in this community.”
He says they are bringing in over 100 vendors, along with a variety of buskers and other performers.
“First year basically sold out and we were at capacity right up until closing and then we have doubled the size and the license for this,” Heywood says. “We are now expecting about a thousand people in the pubs and we are expecting about 3,000 to 4,000 people on 10th Avenue for the market.”
Four bands will also take to the stage in Rotary Park from 2 to 10 pm Saturday.
That will be running alongside the 2nd Annual Pop-Up Beer Stop, hosted by JCI Kootenay.
