St. Germain is gearing up to host its outdoor Colorama event this Saturday, Sept. 19, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the St. Germain Community Park.

For 62 years, St. Germain has proudly called itself the “Birthplace of Colorama.” People are invited to experience beautiful fall colors and celebrate bountiful harvest at the annual craft show and farmer’s market. 

Craft vendors will offer an array of trinkets, home goods and decor, ranging from handmade pottery to purses and handbags to jewelry.

Participants also can enjoy free horse-drawn wagon rides through wooded trails, pumpkin painting for children, and the popular Mums the Word mum sale. 

Live entertainment by Bernie Thompson will take place from 9 a.m. to noon, followed by a performance by Old Pine Road Band from 12:30 to 4 p.m.

Food offerings including hot dogs and brats by the St. Germain Chamber; a variety of cheese curds provided by Cow Curds; creme puffs, donuts and elephant ears from Geno’s Bake Shoppe; lamb, beef or chicken gyros from SB?Concessions; and kettle corn and snacks from Grandpa ChooChoo’s Kettle Corn and Flavored Popcorn will be on hand all day.

Meanwhile, those age 21 and older can sample regional microbrews at the Pints in the Park beer tasting event from noon to 4 p.m. at the park. Tasting tickets will be on sale at Colorama.

The event will take place rain or shine and is free to the public.
