Prairie Creek Park will host acrobats, jugglers, magic, comedy, music, food and even a game show during Frankfort Main Street’s Fall Harvest Festival from 4-10 p.m. Saturday in downtown Frankfort.
“Mainly what we are trying to do right now is give people something to do while the weather is still decent,” said Kim Stevens, executive director of Frankfort Main Street. “They can get out and enjoy one of the things that is going on in the community at Prairie Creek Park.”
The Cincinnati Circus will return to Prairie Creek Park after entertaining families during the Hot Dog Festival in July. The circus show will get things started at 4 p.m. with aerial acrobatic silks, aerial lyra, hula hooping, juggling and fire acts, and they will perform a second show at 6:15 p.m.
“We had great comments. People were very excited when they were here for the Hot Dog Festival,” Stevens said. “They will bring back some different cast members, so I expect it to be a little different than the Hot Dog Festival shows. I know one comment made by a friend of mine was that her little granddaughter was at every show at the (Hot Dog) festival, and now she wants to join the circus. The children loved it, and the parents were impressed with the quality, so we are excited to have them back.”
The Cincinnati Circus will also have Comedy and Magic shows at 5:30 p.m. and 7:45 p.m.
A “Minute to Win It” game show will begin at 4:45 p.m. with another chance to play coming at 7 p.m.
“We want people to bring their kids down there,” Stevens said. “There will be prizes. There will be challenges and teams competing. They will have a minute to complete the task, and they will win a prize for that.”
C & R Catering will offer food at the Fall Harvest Festival, and Dippin’ Dots will also be available. Beer and wine will be available through Arni’s.
A concert by Living Proof will begin at 8:30 p.m. on The Famers Bank Performance Center Stage.
“I hope everybody can come see the band. I think they are going to love them,” Stevens said. “Living Proof is a group that does all types of cover music. They are family friendly and upbeat with a lot of horns. It is a mixture of classic rock, pop, soul and original songs. They are very high-energy. I think people will have a lot of fun with them.
“We strive for family friendly,” Stevens said of the festival. “This is a fun activity for people to come out and enjoy with their kids. It is 4-10 p.m., so it is not an all-day thing. They can come, leave and then come back late to enjoy the music. We will keep it moving.”
Prairie Creek Park will be the site of the Hispanic Heritage Festival on Sept. 18. Isaac Rudd & The Revolvers and the Jason Wells Band will perform on The Farmers Bank Performance Center Stage on Sept. 24 with guest Michael Kelsey opening.
