The bite of fall was in the air for the ninth annual Foli-Ole-Fest at Anderson Florist Garden Center and Greenhouse Saturday.

But that didn’t stop kids and families from having all kinds of fun while helping the Douglas County Food Shelf at the same time.

With the admission of one non-perishable food item or cash donation, children could enjoy a petting zoo, hay rides, face painting, apples on a string, cookie decorating and other fun games.

Several local businesses sponsored the event.
