Plymouth County Conservation to host its first ever FRIENDS FALL FESTIVAL

In Conjunction with Halloween at Hillview, Plymouth County Conservation is hosting its first ever FRIENDS FALL FESTIVAL.  There will be a fun run, games for the kids, pumpkins to purchase and a craft fair.

Halloween at Hillview is October 11 from 6pm to 8pm and the fall festival will be October 12 from 9am to 4pm. This is a fund raising event in hopes to make it an annual event.  For at least the first couple of years the proceeds will go toward building a new playground on the south side of Hillview.  The playground will be located between Bur Oak campground and the picnic shelter where the old playground stands now.

Plymouth County Conservation is currently looking for volunteers to help with this event and Craft Venders to participate.  Contact Diana by calling 712-947-4270 or email ddowhower@co.plymouth.ia.us
