True to its name, the 38th annual Fall Festival in Pine Mountain Village ushered in the autumn season with cooler weather, dark rolling clouds and heavy rain.
Many of the vendors shut down, waiting for the rain to pass and the festivities to continue. Celebrating mountain residents—happy to receive the downpour after a dry summer—took shelter inside nearby businesses.
Prior to the rain, classic rock, pan flutes, laughter and community chatter filled the air. The kids enjoyed the ever-popular Euro-Jump, run by patient owners willing to take the time to teach happy kids the proper technique to flip over while sailing into the sky, to the amazement of onlooking grandparents. Funnel cake filled the stomachs of many and the community kids ran, played and skated through the crowds, many with brightly painted faces.
Meanwhile, the adults kept the original spirit of Oktoberfest alive at the beer and wine booth, dancing to the live bands and shopping at the eclectic array of vendors.
