On three Saturdays in September, the Root River Trail System will feature local food, artisans, entertainment, culture, and fun during an annual trail wide event, Taste of the Trail.

On September 21, the towns of Fountain, Harmony and Preston are teaming together to show off their abundance of food, beverages and entertainment in Southeast Minnesota between 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Each town will include its own growers, producers and restaurateurs, offering complimentary samples of their products. Live entertainment will also be part of the fun.

Join us in Fountain at the Trailhead & adjacent City Park which has two covered picnic areas, restrooms, baseball diamond, volleyball & basketball courts, a play equipment area for children, and of course...a drinking fountain. If you prefer bottled, pick up a free bottle of Natural Spring water from Amish Tours By Rose, along with a “passport” listing participating vendors & businesses. At the end of your visit, hand in your “passport” for a drawing of prizes which will be listed on the website.

Harmony invites you to our beautiful Trailhead and Visitor Center at the North edge of town where you can bike in or visit us by car. Relax to the music provided by local musician Charlie Warner. Sample local foods by Harmony food service businesses and artesian water provided by the Harmony Chamber. Kid’s activities will keep the little ones entertained. Learn about geology and Fossils in the area and “Rocken Fossil Fest” in 2014.

Preston will offer several nature activities including an interpretive bike ride & walk, Eagle Buff Raptor & Snake Wildlife Program and a Rockie Top Acres Alpaca Farm exhibit. Kids will enjoy Nanny Giggles and Uncle Chuckles with balloon making & face painting as well as a Kid’s Health and Safety program in Downtown Preston. Test-taste treats will be provided by local Preston businesses / vendors. Listen to live music by country/pop & gospel artist Ron Haugen.
