Huntley's Fall Fest began in 2006 as a one-day event, but it has grown into a three-day festival big enough to rival many other Fox Valley fests.

Festival hours are 4 to 11 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 27-29, at 12015 Mill St., Huntley. Admission is free, with the exception of 5 to 11:30 p.m. Saturday, when adults pay $5 to get in.

Festival highlights include a carnival, main stage and family stage entertainment, a 5K run and 1 mile run/walk, beer garden, book sale, car show, food vendors, pancake breakfast, scarecrow building and contest, pumpkin patch, petting zoo and pony rides, tractor show, and craft and home business show. There will be a fireworks show at 8:45 p.m. Saturday.
