is the month for Fall Festivals and autumn celebrations
in our region, only
80 miles from St. Louis. Planning
and preparations begin weeks in advance for the community
Fall Festivals and parades. The parade in Arcadia
Valley is the longest running parade in the state of Missouri.
. . . 86 years and counting! The incredible floats
are built by parents and students in a heavy competition
which starts early in the school year as students and their
parents work feverishly on fund raisers to earn money for
the floats and talent competition. Then, the float building
takes place. Investments in float materials runs into
the thousands of dollars.
Following the parade a float viewing event is held at the
historic Iron County Courthouse, along with a Mountain Music Festival. The Fall Festival
is a gathering of many delightful artisans, crafters
and cuisine vendors. It's
an old fashioned
"homegrown" celebration rarely found these days.
