***UPDATE*** 5:30 am Saturday, 9/20- The weather forecast for today looks great, and Fall Fest is on! See you at the park!
Please join us for our 30th Annual Fall Fest, Saturday, September 20th, from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm.
Suggested donations of $2 will be accepted at the entrance to support Chester winter program scholarships for families in need who want to participate in winter sports. Donations last year totaled about $7000 and the goal is to surpass this amount.
The music schedule includes:
10:00 AM to Noon, Greg Tiburzi, playing folk rock
12:00 to 2:00, Jim Hall, playing acoustic guitar and folk rock
2:00 to 4:00, Mark Rubin, playing soft rock
Everyone is HIGHLY encouraged to use the three free shuttle buses that will run continuously from the University of Minnesota Duluth Parking Lot B located at the intersection of College Street and University Drive, across from the administrative building.
Road and bridge repairs continue immediately west of the Chester Bowl Park entrance thereby limiting access to just the eastern entrance. Pedestrians can enter from the east side, but Skyline Parkway will also be closed to cars from the east starting at Kent Road on the day of the event. Parking is prohibited along Skyline Parkway after Kent Road.
If there is inclement weather, the planned rain date is Sunday, September 21, from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM.
This annual event is sponsored by the City of Duluth Parks and Recreation Division, Midwest Communications, and the Chester Bowl Improvement Club.
