Hands4Hope is proud to announce its first Hands4Hope Fall Festival at El Dorado Hills Town Center, Oct. 14 & 15, featuring tons of fun, family-orientated games and activities to celebrate the fall season. Some notable attractions include a hay maze, hay rides, along with a scarecrow making station and doggie costume contests. There will also be delicious fall themed foods and drinks — apple-cider donuts from Rainbow Orchards, a variety of treats from Nugget and apple cider from Barsotti Juice Company.

The festival is farm themed, highlighting El Dorado County’s diverse agricultural community. Enjoy farm-themed games such as Feed the Pig and Lasso the Cow in addition to a 4-H Animal Exploration area.

The event will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday along the waterfront in the amphitheater Sandra’s Rose Garden.

The Fall Festival is Hands4Hope’s largest youth-led event of the year. The youth project team is organized to mimic a functioning event production company — an end product of a entertaining and event-filled fall family festival with management and staff made up of youth and end goals of raised funds, improved lives, gained career skills and­­, most important­­ly, fun for all. The youth management is mentored by adults with current or past career experience.

The Hands4Hope Fall Festival is sponsored and supported by El Dorado Hills Town Center, Nugget Market and Fork Lift, PG&E, Western Sign Company, Intero Real Estate, Marshall Medical Center, The Gift of Kids, Datwyler Orthodontics, Lee’s Feed, Parker Development, 4-H El Dorado, Doug Veerkamp General Engineering and the El Dorado HIlls Community Services District.
