Dozens of vendors and hundreds of festivalgoers were on hand for the inaugural Fall Festival, Saturday at Royal Range USA.
The Royal Range parking lot became a vast and vibrant sea of color as purveyors of custom crafts, handmade goods and local produce displayed their seasonal wares.
The event was held in support of The Ark Community Resource Center, as patrons were encouraged to donate canned goods and other non-perishable items to help stock the food pantry.
Of course, as with practically all other outdoor events so far this season, the weather was, quite literally, a hot topic of discussion. Sunny skies and temperatures well into the nineties made it hard to believe that cooler air and the upcoming holiday season are just a matter of weeks away.
If you were unable to attend, or would like more information about how you can donate or volunteer, please visit Royal Range USA at 7741 Highway 70 South in Bellevue, or contact Ark Community Resource Center at 615.457.1931.
