Homewood's favorite fall time festival is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 17, at Independence Park.

Fall Fest will feature live entertainment, horse-drawn wagon rides through downtown, the annual bean bag tournament, petting zoo and pony rides, games, craft vendors, a pumpkin patch, children's crafts, and scrumptious cuisine prepared by local eateries.

A highlight of Fall Fest is the annual Chili-Cook Off where residents vie for "Homewood's Top Chef" while raising money for a local not-for-profit in the Open Chili Tasting.
Great music is a staple of Fall Fest, and three talented bands -- the Fret Brothers, Latin Satin Soul, and Staff Infection and the South Side Horns -- will will carry on this finger-snapping, toe tapping tradition.
