Winter Garden is continuing to celebrate the beauty of fall with the cultural event of the season. 

The highly-anticipated Fall Heritage and Music Festival takes residents back 118 years ago to the initial founding of the city. 

The day-long celebration will showcase the community’s historic roots with old-fashioned family fun. 

The city will offer exhibits and activities to educate the community on the history of Winter Garden, family-friendly games, live music on five stages, special treats, and even some baseball. 

Most of the earlier activities will begin around 8 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 6.

Baseball, softball, field games, and other children's activities at Sam Williams Little League Complex and Veterans Memorial Park will start at 8 a.m. as well as the Health and Harvest Festival and the Donut Dash 5k to benefit the Police Athletic League. 

At 8:30 a.m. the Heritage Tree Walking Tour will begin. 

Later in the morning the city will offer lawn games at the Farmer's Market and an Arts and Crafts Show. 

Local music will also be present throughout the day on five different stages.

A variety of different genres will play from the afternoon through the evening including the Dublin Beat Irish Band, Thomas Wynn and Hannah Harber, We Flip Entertainment and School of Rock. 

Although Plant Street will be closed the day of the event, parking can be found at a variety of locations such as the the Downtown Parking Garage on Boyd Street, the public parking lot at the corner of S. Dillard St. and E. Plant St., and at Veterans Memorial Park.
