The 79th annual Scio Fall Festival set for Aug. 15-18 on Scio's Main Street will be a sea of purple and gold as the town salutes the Jewett-Scio Alumni Band, two former coaches, and a former band director.
"The Pride of Jewett and Scio: Jewett-Scio Alumni Band" is this year's event theme. Window displays, parade floats and this year's commemorative cup will reflect the theme. Big "O" Amusements will provide rides and games and 15 local non-profit organizations, churches and school booster clubs will have food stands.
The fair kicks off Wednesday, Aug. 15 and continues through Aug. 18. Plenty of activities and events will take place including the festival parade, car show, cornhole tournaments, dances, music, bike show, stage entertainment, Cub Mobile Derby, duck race and much more.
