SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. — The Sun Prairie Downtown Business Improvement District (BID) announced details on their 14th annual “Fall Fun in Downtown Sun Prairie,” event in a release on Friday.

Sponsored by Bank of Sun Prairie, Beans ‘n Cream Coffeehouse and Faded Roots Boutique, the “pumpkin fun” will be held in Downtown Sun Prairie’s Cannery Square on Oct. 17, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Sarah Wells, Event Coordinator and Farmers Market Manager, said not only will the event “be the place to enjoy the sights and sounds of fall,” but also “designed to offer a variety of safe, socially-distanced activities.”

The “Fall Fun” will feature a scarecrow contest and a horse-drawn wagon traveling in a loop around the south side of Downtown Sun Prairie. Accordionist Steve Meisner will entertain attendees from the wagon with traditional American polka music from 12:00-3:00 p.m.

Due to social distancing requirements, wagon rides will not be offered this year.
