Courtyard packed for fall festival

By John Miller, 10/10/22 10:10 AM

PRESCOTT – Saturday was a near perfect day for the Prescott-Nevada County Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Fall Festival and Trade Days.

The morning dawned clear and chilly, with a stiff wind blowing early on. As the day drew on and sun became warmer, the breeze was more than welcome, except for those in the dunking booth, who preferred being in the water to sitting out in wind wet. The courthouse lawn was packed with around 54 vendors hawking their wares. Several food vendors were on hand to help curb the hunger experienced by those who stayed all day. OYEA was set up to sell sausages and the Bank of Delight provided free coffee to those so inclined.

It didn’t take long for people to start showing up and visiting the different booths. All of the local civic clubs were represented either with a food truck or game booth. There was also plenty of entertainment as Dancetastics performed first, followed by Brady Rhodes, who sang more than 30 minutes. He was followed by the Prescott High School Band’s drum line and brass group.

The festival came to an unofficial end with the Little Mister and Miss Fall Festival Pageants. Thirteen children vied for crowns in four categories. Brenliegh Peters was crowned Tiny Miss. With Rhett Doucet named Little Mister and Callie Cross Little Miss, with  Harley Butler first runner up. In the “miss” division, Kaiden Williams was Little Mister with Annison Moten Miss. For Young Miss, Tinley Cross was first runner up with Paisley Purtzer the winner. The overall pageant winner was Aliza Thompson.
