This weekend was beautiful. The leaves are turning colors. This makes for beautiful scenery for the Fulton Fall Folk Festival.

A large amount of vendors will be set up at the Barn on Route 522 north of Mc- Connellsburg. Lots of items for everyone. A good place to browse and enjoy the day.

Fulton County Quilt Club display will be at the Fulton Theatre in McConnellsburg. Stop by and see the beautiful quilts of Fulton County.
