The 2015 Lumberton Fall Festival and Paddle is this Saturday

The first days of fall are here and the Lumberton Fall Festival and Paddle celebrates the change of season with plenty of outdoor fun this Sat, Sept 19.
 
Taking place in three locations, Lumberton Village Green, Ironwood Outdoor Center and the Rancocas Creek, the festival is connected by free shuttle bus service.
 
The highlight of the event is a gentle paddle canoe trip along the Rancocas Creek from Ironwood to the Chestnut Street landing.  
 
Canoes, paddles and safety gear are provided with the $20 trip fee.  Folks are also welcome to bring their own canoe (however, they must bring their own life preservers).
 
Over at the Ironwood Outdoor Center, attendees can try the ropes course, featuring a 225-foot Zip-line, a climbing wall, vertical playpen and “Flying Squirrel” rope drop experience. The first turn on the course is free.  The center also boasts nature trails, a sensory garden and playground.
 
The festival’s hub is at the Village Green with live music, dance demonstrations, local vendors and exhibits about the town.  It’s also the center for kids’ activities such as face and pumpkin painting, inflatable rides and a “Touch a Truck” interactive display of rescue vehicles.
 
Kids of all ages are welcome, but the minimum age for the canoe trips and ropes course is 6 years old.
 
Saturday, Sept. 19, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. (rain date Sunday, Sept. 20)  – Main St., Lumberton, NJ.
