The public is cordially invited to attend the Festival Friday, Oct. 13 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturday, Oct. 14 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Sunday, Oct. 15, from noon to 5 p.m. There is no admission charge. Parking is free. The Lodge is handicapped-accessible. With leaves hitting their fall finest, it's a great weekend to hop in the car and take a drive.
Canter's Cave is nestled back into a hollow and offers great hiking trails and breathtaking scenery.
Foothills Art Festival offers "#ArtRocks", an art activity for those interested, to design their own message on a rock and help spread the reach of art in the region. Those designed rocks will be popping up in the region this autumn.
Concessions by Canter's Cave are available, including some tasty pumpkin pie, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. each day.
Foothills is organized by the Southern Hills Arts Council and sponsored by: Peoples Bank, WesBanco, Sheward-Fulks Insurance Agency, Eisnaugle Custom Framing, In Memory of Jim Brown, and State Farm Insurance, Dan Dailey, agent. Rocks for the #ArtRocks art experience are provided by Kelley's Lawn and Landscape of Oak Hill.
