Kick off a fun-filled fall season at Autumn Harvest, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, at North School Park, Arlington Heights Road and Miner Street.
Start making your plans now for the scarecrow building contest (we supply all you need), taking a hayride, or showing off your pet in our Pet Parade. There will also be a kids' craft area, balloon artists, petting zoo, food and live entertainment.
Start off the day with a family bicycle ride, "Pedal Hard -- Breathe Easy," that starts at Hasbrook Park, 333 W. Maude, at 9:30 a.m. with registration and activities.
The 4.3-mile ride will take off at 10 a.m. and follow a route to North School Park.
The first 75 children to register by Oct. 4 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org will receive an [URL]Idle Free Arlington;http://www.vah.com/residents/green/idle_free.aspx[URL] backpack that promotes the village's initiative to encourage drivers to idle less while dropping off children at schools and activities, waiting at a railroad crossing or waiting in line at a drive-through.
These few "idle free" steps can improve air quality and help everyone to "breathe easy." Registration will also be held at Hasbrook Park from 9:30-10 a.m. on Saturday.
