“Homewood Fall Fest is my favorite event of the year,” said Mayor Rich Hofeld. “We like to offer festival goers new activities each year to keep things exciting while maintaining things like the chili cook-off that are such a crowd pleaser! This year we have introduced a lot of new activities like the pumpkin carving contest and Safety Town bike race that I think will be a big hit.”
