We are just hours away from the 2018 Fall Festival and the weather looks clear and dry for both Friday night, and all day and into the evening on Saturday. Although the weather is looking good, please plan on the possibility of damp and wet areas within the park from this week’s rain. The Cheshire Fall Festival Committee along with the Town of Cheshire Public Works are working diligently all week to keep this year’s festival safe and fun. Dress accordingly!
