The Fall Festival will be held 1-4 p.m. with hayrides, pony rides, two moon bounces, pumpkin decorating, crafts and balloons. There will be the never-ending trick-or-treat candy line made up of 30 local businesses, and a stilt walker.

Kids can snack on fall classics such as taffy apples and German pretzels or enjoy a full array of German food. All activities are free and sponsored by the Mount Prospect Downtown Merchants Association.

Stick around, though, because the party kicks into high gear in the evening.

The Oktoberfest, which is more adult-themed, will immediately follow the Fall Festival, from 4-11 p.m.

Authentic German food, beer and music by Phenix will highlight the evening under a heated tent. The Best German Attire Contest will be part of the fun.

Special thanks to the following businesses for their sponsorship: Anderson Tax & Accounting; B&E Accounting; Busse Automotive; Byte Me! Computers; Capannari Ice Cream; Innate Concepts Chiropractic; Keefer's Pharmacy; the law office of Mark Watychowicz; MB Financial Bank; Mount Prospect Child Care Center; Northshore University Health System; Olympus Gyros; Picket Fence Realty of Mount Prospect; Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating; Van Driel's Medical Support Center and the village of Mount Prospect.

Admission is free. For details, visit www.downtownmountprospect.com.
