MONTROSE—Better get the costumes out! The Second Annual Montrose Fall Fun Festival is set for Saturday, Oct. 27, from noon to 4 p.m., with plenty of games and age-appropriate fun for kids of all ages on Main Street in Downtown Montrose. Youth organizations will provide activities, and all funds raised will go to serve the participating youth programs, organizer Amy Harm- sen said. Also needed are fun, seasonal decorations such as straw, balloons, flag pennant banners, pumpkins, gourds, corn stalks and 750 prize bags (re-useable would be great!). All dona- tions are tax deductible.

Expect fun surprises like ice cream coupons, and the traditional Halloween Costume Contest. Tickets will be available on the day of the event. To learn more or to volunteer, call Amy at 970-209- 3578 or email her at pokeyp@me.com.
