Alpine County celebrates autumn with fall festival

Alpine County is scheduled to wind up its last autumn celebration of the year Saturday in Markleeville.

This is the third event of the fall festivals in the area, sponsored by The county Chamber of Commerce.

The free festival kicks off at noon and will last until 6 p.m.

Live entertainment will be provided by a jazz guitarist, Virginia City gun fighters and saloon girls, and the Black Irish Band’s Irish, Italian and American sounds.

There will be kids’ games, 25 arts and crafts booths, and food and beer stands.

Bob Anderson, executive director of the chamber of commerce, said the previous festivals have been very successful and hopes Markleeville will be just as entertaining.

“We’re planning on having a good turnout,” Anderson said. “It should be a fun time. The colors (of the trees) are beautiful, so the drive alone is worth it.”
