Roosevelt Fall Festival a Local Favorite

In what has become a favorite local event, it’s time again for the Roosevelt annual Fall Festival. Each year, competitive carvers of all ages create art from pumpkins to enter in the festival’s decorating or carving contest. “It’s that time of year, with a chill in the air, for the Fall Festival at the Old Mill Park in Roosevelt,” shares Duchesne County Chamber Director Irene Hansen. The festival includes vendors, entertainment and the opportunity to do some good in the community. “The Roosevelt Rotary Club is kicking off their fall cleanup project,” shares Hansen, and there will be special prizes for the participants. Whatever the reason your family finds to come, make the Roosevelt annual Fall Festival a stop for some fun on Friday, October 7th, from 3:30 to 6:00pm at the Old Mill Park.
