(MARLETTE) – Shop, dine, and entertain local with the Marlette Area Chamber of Commerce Friday, September 25th for the Kick-Off to Fall event happening in downtown Marlette!
COVID-19 restrictions did not allow for many of the fun festivities that were highlights of last year’s Fall Family Fun Day, so this year’s event is scaled back and contact-free for the safety of all in attendance.
The Farmers Market will kick-off festivities from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
