As we welcome the Fall season it has been wonderful to get back to all the festivals in the surrounding areas. A BIG one is the Riley Fall Fall Festival! Events for the Riley Fall Festival begin at 5 am, if you are taking part in the BBQ contest. See the events calendar or follow their Facebook page for details!
Those just coming for the fun, 8 am will be your start time on Saturday with Biscuits and Gravy at the Riley City Library. The car show begins shortly after at 9 am and runs until 11 am. Right after attendees can enjoy the 1st Infantry Division Band on the main stage, vendor booths and the beer garden will open. If Cornhole is your game, sign your team up and compete in the Fall Festival Cornhole Tournament, it begins at 11 am so sign up asap!
There is plenty of fun for the kiddos as well at the Riley Fall Festival. The kids can enjoy train rides, balloon twisters, bounce houses, and more! You can also enjoy the ice cream social in the afternoon. Head to the Petting Zoo and JR. Firefighter Training and then enjoy more performances on the main stage.
Beginning at 2 pm the Grateful Dudes will kick off the concert portion of the Riley Fall Festival, up next will be Savanna Chestnut and The Field Hands, and then my personal favorite, Mother's Worry! Mother's Worry plays a great mix of music, they are all great songs everyone knows!
The day will end with the pie contest winners, dinner outside of Riley Bank building, and then the BBQ contest winners will be announced.
The weekend looks beautiful so enjoy the day in Riley, KS, and enjoy a great fall festival!
