Amberations Fall Festival returns Oct. 1
Mark your calendars for Amberations’ Annual Fall Festival, Sunday Oct. 1 from 1 to 6 p.m. There is something for all ages and abilities to enjoy during our exciting fall festivities!
For those not familiar with this event, it boasts some of the finest local music around. It includes Kambuyu Marimba, a marimba ensemble rooted in the musical traditions of the Shona people of Zimbabwe. They play happy, percussive music that is rhythmic and meant for dancing. Bob Lyna will perform, he is well known for his driving vocals and his engaging, humorous stage presence. He sings classics from the 60’s to the present. The Perennials will play an eclectic blend of music from a variety of artists and include some traditional fiddling as well.
New this year is Sydney Irving, a 14-year-old singer songwriter who plays guitar and ukulele. She already has her own CD, Hello Stranger, and has been performing publicly for about a year and a half.
This fun festival always has an assortment of wonderful foods including Amberations’ own pumpkin chili, apple crisp, apple cider, cookies, spanakopita, hot dogs and more. Games, animals, a treasure hunt and crafts all make this an event you won’t want to miss! Plan to stay until five to participate in the ever-popular duck race. Come to 2223 Amber Road Marietta, adjacent to Amberations’ barn. Event hours are 1 to 6 p.m., chili participants should arrive between noon and 1 p.m.
