St. Joe holds annual Fall Festival
The annual Town of St. Joseph Fall Festival will be Saturday, Sept. 8, on the town hall/fire hall grounds. Beginning with a Fire Department pancake breakfast being held from 8 to 11 a.m., festivities will continue from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. with a selection of governmental interest and family-oriented events. Representatives of Wisconsin DOT will be on hand to answer questions regarding the St. Croix River Bridge as well as having videos and displays about the bridge.
Begun as a neighborhood get-acquainted event to show off the community, the Fall Festival is held jointly with Family of Christ Lutheran Church located across the intersection of County E and V in the Town of St Joseph. Both venues will feature items of interest for all. Trolley rides will be provided between church and town hall, and perhaps further, will be offered.
A bake sale, crafts, garden plants and lunch will be offered at the church. Children's activities such as an inflatable castle and other inflatables and a dunk tank will be on site along with games.
On the town hall side of the road, Chris Madsen's draft horses and wagon rides will be featured along with the Schottler Milk Bud ponies. A Rolling Hills 4-H petting zoo showing some of the member's animal projects will be on hand, along with other 4-H activities. Promising fun for all ages, the event includes a tractor display for the adults. A St. Joe history booth offers a peek at town history and an opportunity to read about early residents of the town. Homestead Parklands, St. Croix County HCE (Homemakers), Master Gardeners, food booths sponsored by local Boy Scouts, and booths from local businesses and game and craft booths will be on site also. Sites are available for other vendors who may wish to take part in the event.
Town officials will be available to discuss issues and answer questions. For further information about the event, contact the town hall at (715) 549-6235 or Family of Christ Church at (715) 549-6140.
