Mark your calendars for Oct. 1 for the annual Fall Festival at Living Waters Ranch just southwest of Osceola. The festival is a free day for families to come out to the ranch and enjoy MANY outdoor activities. Hours of the festival will be 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

There will be something for everyone. Bring your lawn chair and enjoy special music from area talent.  James Damon of Prepcasts-KCMW will emcee  throughout the day with music and information about our activities and sponsors. Other activities include the zip line, giant slide, pony rides, bounce house, tomahawk throwing, BB guns with the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Dept, archery with Backwoods Sportsmen, fishing, petting zoo and hayrides. A full concession stand will be available throughout the day with many food items, T-shirts, and novelty items to purchase.

New This Year: Forgers for Christ will be set up and children will be able to make a dinner bell or tomahawk to take home. GAGA Ball, 9 Square, Hillbilly Mini Golf, Life Size Checkers, and old fashioned fun at the barn have been added to the day. Activities at the barn will include making a candle, making a rag doll, making homemade butter in a jar and learning how to lasso a calf.
