McConnellsburg FFA is busily getting ready for this year’s Fulton Fall Folk Festival. On Saturday, FFA members will have a float in the annual parade in conjunction with Southern Fulton and Forbes Road’s FFAs that will feature the wagon they recently rebuilt in agriculture class. But the really big events will take place Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. across from the firehall and alumni building on the corner of Maple and Third streets.

Members are bringing in their animals for a petting zoo for people young and old to enjoy. They expect calves, miniature horses, sheep, goats, chickens, rabbits, cats and dogs.

“I really like giving people that aren’t around animals like I am the chance to get to know them,” stated Sara Wenschhof, chapter president.

In addition, there will be many other opportunities for people to get into the fall spirit with a straw maze, face painting, scarecrow decorating and pumpkin decorating stations. Baked goods, snacks and drinks will also be available to purchase. On Saturday at 3 p.m., a sheep and goat patty bingo will be held. Take a chance on what squares the sheep and goat will do their business! Tickets will be available the day of the event.
