“There’s games, door prizes, lots of stuff for the kids,” Shaun Merrell, facilities director, said. “This Saturday is our big event. It’s our Fall Family Fair. We’ve got a ton of stuff going on.”

The fair starts at 9 a.m. and will run until 3 p.m.

Free hot dogs and chips will be served at noon and continue until they run out.

Kids can play on inflatables and other games and even get some temporary tattoos.
