When the leaves begin to change and the air grows crisper, it's time for Clawson's annual Fall Festival.
This year the popular event will be held on October 7 at City Park.
The schedule for the day includes:
- 12 p.m.: Charity car show (benefiting the Clawson baseball program)
- 3 p.m.: Child ID program (each child receives a free dental impression kit as well as a CD containing a photo, video, digital fingerprints and their vital information)
- 3 - 6 p.m.: Free hayrides, climbable inflatables and a farm animal show
- 6:15 p.m.: Community bonfire (conducted by the Clawson Fire Dept.)
As a new addition this year, the Fall Festival will also feature a food truck rally. Mobile kitchens of local hotspots including Concrete Cuisine, Jacque’s Tacos, Ned’s TravelBurger, People’s Pierogi Collective, Taco Mama and Treat Dreams, will have their food available for purchase. The food truck rally will be held in place of the former "Taste of Clawson" event.
"Each truck offers different items and are essentially little restaurants on wheels," said Kathy Leenhouts, Director of Recreation and Senior Services, who also notes there will be ample pavilion seating available and live musical entertainment.
So, come on down and bring the whole family and celebrate Fall "Clawson style"!
