Summit, NJ Celebrate the bounty of Fall – golden autumn colors, crisp weather, yummy harvest fare – with family and friends at Reeves-Reed Arboretum's eagerly anticipated annual fall festival, CELEBRATE FALL, Sunday, October 26, from 11 am to 4 pm.

The theme this year will be celebrating Native American traditions associated with the changing season. Special guests include the Red Hawk Native American Dance Troupe offering traditional dances. An interactive "obstacle course," complete with a tunnel to crawl through, a log to balance on, and hoops to hop, will give youthful participants the experience of tracking animals in the wild.

The day's fantastic festivities will also include music, games, face painting, a costume parade, apple cider demonstrations (with RRA Horticulture Director, Marc Montefusco), an outdoor green market and craft fair, and a pumpkin carving and decorating contest with prizes. And don't forget to stop by our historic Daffodil Bowl to see our visiting "eco-goats" in action! Seasonal snaps by local photographer, Bruce Lorenz, will capture the day's fun for all.

Our green market vendors include Pizza Vita, Outsliders, Sigmund's Pretzels, Taste This Cheesecake, Yona's Delights, Jams by Kim, Nicola's Pasta Fresca, Tomaro Honey, Wolf Conservation Center, and Wee World of Faerie Magic.

Admission to CELEBRATE FALL is FREE to Reeves-Reed Arboretum and Beacon Hill Club members. Non-members, $10 per person/ $25 per family, children under 3 free.

CELEBRATE FALL is sponsored, in part, thanks to support from Haven Savings Bank, Nexgen Sources, Hall's Garden Center, King's Supermarket, and Beacon Hill Club.
