Each year for 35 years or so, the Fall Festival has been presented by the ABCA for the community. It features quality artisans and crafters, a civil war re–enactment camp, a classic car show, live entertainment in the forms of music, dancing and clowns, a petting zoo, contests and more. This show has continued to improve year after year and has drawn in crowds of over ten thousand.
