The annual Fall into Lanesboro event takes place on Saturday, October 1, from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. at various locations throughout picturesque Lanesboro. Some activities are free, and others cost.
Event organizers describe the event as a “Family-friendly, fun-filled fall event to enjoy Lanesboro with a scavenger hunt, wagon ride, pumpkin & cookie decorating, and so much more!”
Stop at the Lanesboro Visitor Center when you arrive in town and pick up your free Lanesboro Quest scavenger hunt card, followed by a visit to the Farmers’ Market in Sylvan Park. The park has two trout-stocked ponds that create the park’s focal point surrounded by mature trees with a majestic scenic bluff as the background. Selfie time!
There will be free wagon rides taking visitors throughout downtown.
