Donna and Brent Cutro of Downers Grove made the trip. Patch caught up with them looking at goose garb. "I have a (decorative) goose, but I don't dress it," she said.
One vendor with a display of goose garb caught Donna's eye. She decided it was time to start dressing that goose that has sat unclothed on her front porch for too long.
The Hatch Family-Warren, Veronica and Victoria-decided to make the festival part of their Labor Day Weekend. They bought some specialty coasters and enjoyed a pleasant afternoon, strolling downtown Frankfort.
For artisan Zoli Akacsos, the festival has been decent for sales. Inclement weather earlier in the day kept people at bay, but it picked up as soon as the rain stopped, he said.
Akacsos has a shop called Zoli's Carvings in Frankfort and another one in Monroe, WI. He carves wildlife designs out of logs, and he has a collection of holiday creations as well.
Showing off his rustic style coffee tables, hutches and other one-of-a-kind pieces, Chuck Ehrenha of Mount Vernon said he had a good day Saturday. "I sold two pieces during the downpour."
Ehrenha, a retired Oak Lawn fire fighter, knew the Frankfort festival was a good place to set up for a weekend. "I came in 2006. This is my second time here."
Look to Patch for more Fall Fest coverage throughout the weekend.
