Fall is here, and with it comes the changing of leaves. And many say Mentone is one of the best places to see the colors of fall.

Mentone is gearing up for the annual Color Fest.

The event is Oct. 16-18 and many activities are planned for the celebration.

Brow Park is the place for entertainment Friday, as well as a bonfire.

Arts, crafts, food and fun will take over on Saturday and Sunday, featuring local artist Lydia Randolph on Saturday, who plans to draw portraits and have on display some watercolors paintings she has done from within the town.

Color Fest Coordinator Carol Killian said there will be something for everyone at the annual festival.

“There will be a variety of crafters, artists and several things for sale, such as stained glass, baskets, jewelry, candles, lamp shades, wood toys and furniture,” Killian said.

First-time coordinator Dewey Crow said he is happy to help with the event.

“Many people come here just to see the vibrant fall colors,” Crow said. “It’s the prettiest place in the state for fall colors.”

Entertainment on Friday will begin at 7 p.m. at Brow Park. Oct. 17-18 events are from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Admission is free to all events.
