Fall is coming up on us quick. And with fall comes a whole host of parades and festivals in and around Kansas City! The following are just some of the parades/festivals coming up (and ones in which MCPL will be participating):
The parade will start everything off on Saturday morning. Throughout the weekend, there will be several different musical performances as well as other live entertainment. There will be a children’s area and a petting zoo to keep the kids entertained. There will also be several different vendors selling food, crafts, etc.
This past Saturday, the library’s Book Cart Drill Team took part in the Fall Fun Fest Parade. I was so happy to see so many of our library customers taking part in this event and cheering for us. As employees, we know how important the library and its services are to our community, and we strive every day to create a positive impact on those we serve.
Fall is almost upon us. As everyone in Weston knows, the first Saturday in October is Applefest! There will be parades, apple cider, apple butter making, and hay baling. Shops downtown are decorated for the season, and will be busy. I hope everyone comes out to see the parade because the Book Cart Drill Team will show off their Book cart moves.
