In the COVID age, organizers are challenged with bringing their communities together and maintaining social distancing, but one Piatt County community is pulling it off this weekend.
The Monticello Chamber of Commerce is organizing a socially distanced and small-scale fall festival. Monticello Chamber Executive Director Shelly Crawford-Stock says they have several music acts planned along with activities for families and kids to be a part of.
The annual hit, the scarecrow walk, will be set up. Crawford-Stock says their local domestic violence group, Willowtree Missions annually sets this up and it is a community favorite.
According to Crawford-Stock, they are taking extra precautions to allow those that come out to maintain social distancing. Additionally, they are asking the community to follow all other COVID guidelines, mainly masking.
The music starts at 11 am and goes until 7 pm. Get more information at makeitmonticello.com or find 'Make It Monticello' or the Monticello Chamber of Commerce on Facebook.
