Fall Fest 2016

Staff Writer

The annual Chilifest organized by North Country Chamber of Commerce was held Saturday in conjunction with Fall Foliage Fest. Visitors sampled a variety of chili set up near the Emory Hebard Sate Building. The weather was cool and crisp, with a slight breeze off the lake; perfect for sampling warm chili.

At the Newport Municipal Building more than one hundred quilts were on display, arts and crafts vendors were set up in the Gateway Center, and the “Newport is for Book Lovers” event was taking place as well.
