The 30th Church Street Festival parade featuring the zany Mythweavers Theater Company and friends will step off Saturday, Oct. 6 at 11 a.m. The theme this year is “HOLY COW! — Living in the Land of Milk and Honey.” There will be a MythWeavers Theater performance on Church Street after the parade; and games and special contests with prizes for children.

The annual Church Street Festival celebrates the harvest and creativity of Waldo County and welcomes everyone of any age to participate. Anyone with craft or other distinctive items to sell, are fundraising for a community organization or have harvest or food items to sell can add a table along Church Street in front of the First Church and former Crosby School from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (setup starts at 9 a.m.). There is no charge to join this big Pink Elephant Sale. Organizers are encouraging community groups to bring a game for children or demonstration or information tables. The Win-A-Cake Walk, chalk mandala and bounce house will be back.

Everyone is invited to join the paraders and performers marching down Church Street; the costume parade will start at 49 High St. There also will be a sonnet and limerick contest. Anyone up for helping create the festival fun, or for more information, contact Mary Weaver at 338-5777 or
