Use caution in the area of Silverton Fire House for pedistrians and traffic as the Silverton Fall Festival begins.
The festival, on Kettle Creek Road, will start Saturday at 11 a.m. and last until 6 p.m.
One of the larger seasonal festivals in Toms River will again feature a day of fun, community education and fall activities this Saturday.
Silverton Fire Company, at its Station 29 on Kettle Creek, will host the day-long event. The event is free and open to the public.
Fire truck demonstrations and presentations, including some of the vintage pieces at the station, will take place throughout the day.
In the past, the event has featured a pumpkin patch and pony rides, and even fire truck rides, will be available. Firefighters completed vehicle extrication and helped explain both rescue and fire prevention.
Numerous community associations and businesses participate and help sponsor the event, which also features food and drink for sale and live bands throughout.
A motorcycle and classic car display is planned, and in addition the day is also the annual fall poker run at the firehouse.
