Sunday in the park — Valley Court Park, that is — will include a double bonus for visitors. In addition to the East Lansing Farmers Market, the City’s Parks and Recreation Department will host its annual Autumn Fest from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

A range of activities will be offered at this free, all-ages festival. Attendees can look forward to horse carriage rides, face painting, cider, donuts, food from an array of local vendors and an instrument petting zoo by the School of Rock.

Karla Forrest-Hewitt, manager of the farmers market, said Autumn Fest is “a way to celebrate the fall harvest and to enjoy the season.”

With only three Sundays left in the farmers market season, “Autumn Fest is pretty much the biggest event for the market of the year, and it’s a lot of fun and it’s a great place to hang out and be a part of the community,” Forrest-Hewitt said.
