As we transition from summer to fall, the weather turns colder, and we trade shorts and tank tops for pants and long-sleeved shirts. You know fall has truly arrived when you start seeing more people wearing flannel prints – after all, fall and flannel go hand in hand. Celebrating this iconic fabric, Champaign invites attendees to wear their favorite flannels and indulge in a day of fun activities held at Hessel Park. Timberwork’s Lumberjack Show will also be performing demonstrations throughout the festival, such as axe throwing, logrolling and speed carving. In addition to live music, food trucks and craft beer, visitors can also enjoy arts, crafts, games and even competitions – like the annual mustache competition, a guaranteed fan favorite.
